Eddie K (AKA: Big Pappi)
Drums and Vocals
Like so many others, Eddie started music in 4th grade through the school system with the orchestra (violin). A year later switched to drums and has never looked back. He was a member of every organized musical venture the schools had to offer, orchestra, choir, jazz choir, marching and concert bands, wind ensemble, jazz band and combo. During high school the Jazz ensemble won numerous awards and accolades but none of which were as satisfying as being the drummer for the #1 jazz combo in the state of Michigan his senior year.
Having had the good fortune through the years to study the styles of many of the top working pros has prepared Eddie for the work he has done and continues to do today.
Hank Thompson, Wanda Jackson, Matt Michaelson, Wade Hayes, Suzy Bogess, Bryan White, The Larkins, George Jones, Tracey Lawrence, Johnny Lee are just a few of the artists he played for or worked with over the years.
Eddie joined ThunderFunk in March of 2010
Eddie currently resides in Monroe with his wife of 26 years, Connie. Together they have 3 adult children and 1 Grand Child.
