David Finke, Drums

I recently bought a set of Yamaha electronic drums (we've come a long way from that synthesizer at Harbor JHS) so that I can play at night after the kids go to sleep. I ended up more of a singer than a drummer in college - as part of the a capella scene at Yale. This year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Whiffenpoofs and we have a mini reunion in SF in two weeks.

I married a terrific woman whom I met in Japan almost 20 years ago. She plays the piano and oboe. Our eight-year old daughter is studying piano, and our four-year old daughter will probably start next year as well. We keep a very musical household and enjoy going to the symphony and various other musical activities outside the home too. I am an ardent jazz fan, though I don't get out to shows as often as I might like. I owe a lot of my love of music to you. Thanks!

Warm wishes from the Bay Area!
