"Having played with Spencer on many occasions, I can say with confidence that he is an incredibly solid and versatile drummer. He always comes to practice well prepared; not only does he know the music but he also genuinely desires to make the songs better in any way he can. This is a rare quality in drummers and one of the main reasons Spencer will always have an open invitation to play in our band. Get this guy on your next album or gig ASAP!"
