Darrin Thorpe

Acoustic & Electronic Drums, Percussion, Background Vocals and the Pounding Rhythm of Our Hearts.

Darrin, aka The "Professor" has been playing drums since he was 13 years old.  His biggest inspirations were Buddy Rich and Neil Peart from Rush, and his kindred spirit is Animal from The Muppets!

Darrin has performed with bands spanning the genres of pop, alternative rock, southern rock, country and an ultimate Rush tribute band.

Originally from the Capital Region of New York, he relocated to Port St Lucie, FL to create this ultimate 80s music experience with lifelong friends Jeff and Ronnie Wildermuth.  It's the chemistry between these friends that makes the magic!
