Welcome to the official site of me, Jon McCracken. I'm a 30-year-old drummer/percussionist in Los Angeles, CA with 24 years playing experience, and over a decade of recording and international touring experience. From 2008 to 2010, I attended the drum program at Musician's Institute in Los Angeles, and since then I have been playing with many bands and artists in the US and internationally. Today, I play for a variety of acts including the legendary group The Chambers Brothers, blues legend Guitar Shorty, and the critically acclaimed Rolling Stones tribute band, Jumping Jack Flash. If you are in need of a drummer, and would like to know more about myself, be sure to check out my RESUME for more of my playing experience and skills. You can also see videos of my performances, pics of me, groups I've played with, and stages I've performed on in the GALLERY. To see if I'm playing at a venue near you, check out the TOUR page to see all of my upcoming gigs for the year. And if you like what you see, feel free to contact me anytime using the CONTACT page.

NEWS: Okay, this was difficult but fun. Why? Because for this edition of Jon's Jrum Jams I'm doing "YYZ" by Rush! One of the hardest things to do, for any drummer, is try to copy a drum part by the Professor himself, the late great Neil Peart. Luckily, to help me out with this song, I have some very special guests!
Guitar - Steve Zukowsky (Bohemian Queen)
Bass - Fred Stepanian (The Who Experience)
