Eleanor, the band's drummer, is a resident of Easley, South Carolina and since childhood, has enjoyed church music, dancing (particularly shag) and maintains fond memories of playing the clarinet in her high school band.  Her life-long interest in music is what lead this retired elementary school teacher to her first drum lesson at the young age of 63.  With this kind of musical foundation, it is understandable why at her very first drum lesson, it was "love at first beat!" Through the encouragement of Russ Chapman,her drum instructor and fellow band member along with her many drumming friends, Eleanor has leaned on her talent and musical experience to progress in the art of drumming at an impressive rate. Like Eleanor says, “drumming is dancing with your hands.”
