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. I am also currently endorsed by Collision Drumsticks and Soultone Cymbals. 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.

NEWS: It's officially official! (You heard me.) I can now proudly announce that I have received an amazing endorsement deal by Collision Drumsticks!!!!!! Most drummers spend quite a while finding the perfect pair of sticks, and now I can finally say I have.
For you drummers out there, I'm playing the 5BR stick which is 16 7/8" in length, and slightly thicker than the traditional 5B. What won me over was the consistency. EVERY single stick feels exactly the same, and I can't really say that about any other brand. Even the major ones. To top it all off, everyone at Collision is amazing, helpful, and drummers too!
I am beyond ecstatic to be apart of the Collision family. Be sure to check out their products by clicking here: http://www.collisiondrumsticks.com.
