Drummer: Rhythmm Epkins

Band:The English Beat

Venue:The Blank Club, San Jose on January 16th

You can tell by his name, Rhythmm Epkins that he's a drummer. Rhythmm plays drums for 2tone ska band, The English Beat. He plays a mixture of traditional ska, pop, reggae, soul and R&B beats. He's pictured below peering out from his large kit. Notice the unique placement of his cymbals and how they are coming inward.


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.

[Ed. Note: Each episode of Caught In The Act features a photo of a drummer in action, from the famous like Danny Carey to the not-so-famous local indies. If you're a photographer who'd like to feature your work in Caught In The Act, drop us a note.]
