Zack Olsen of Slow Gherkin

By Leslie Hampton Published February 11, 2010

Drummer: Zack Olsen

Band: Slow Gherkin

Venue:The Crepe Place, Santa Cruz December 16th

After several years of not taking the stage, Slow Gherkin played a secret show in their hometown of Santa Cruz to mark the beginning a new year and a new decade. Drummer Zack Olsen's style mixes ska with crazy drum fills. Despite it being a secret show, it sold out quickly and fans crowded watching outside on the patio looking inside. Nice Craviotto kit too.

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.
