Dave Patterson


Dave, from Monroe NC, has been playing drums since the mid-80’s. After leaving the garage, he played with Fallen Angel on the New Jersey original music scene from 1988 to 1992. He then joined the band Stillwater playing country and rock through the 90’s back in his home state of Ohio.

After taking time off for “adulting activities" , he joined the NC music scene in 2015 playing for Out of The Cellar (Ratt Tribute), Mister Sister (Twisted Sister tribute), and American Hairband. A brief stint with Living Temptation in 2020 was followed by joining Bad Boyz and then his current projects Poison’Us & Kings of Noise in 2021, and Hammer Down in 2023.

Dave proudly plays TAMA drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Vic Firth drumsticks, LP Percussion, and Alesis Electronic equipment, but would be willing to drop any and all in a heartbeat for an endorsement deal.
