John has been playing drums since high school and joined Desert Skye in 2007. He has been a general pain in the butt ever since. Computers and technology are not his friend. If he had cancer, and email was the cure, he would surely die. I can say this because he will never figure out how to check this website and see this. John is a super hero by night and a sleeper by day. He can be seen here kissing a guy.
Besides drinking beer and drumming, Eric owns and runs www.armourinsignia.com. He makes cap badges, kilt pins and many other works of art for the Scottish uniform. He can also whistle backwards. Eric can be seen here enjoying his other favorite hobby... drinking beer!
Dr. Ken Misch is a doctor. For children. And babies. He loves babies. He is also a Drum Major which means he waves a big stick and yells a lot. Besides marching in front of bands like Desert Skye and the L.A. Scots, Ken enjoys drinking gin, smoking cigars and playing with babies, all at the same time. Ken is a great guy to have on your side and a terrible man to have as your enemy. He's a lot like Napoleon that way. Did I mention he carries a big stick?
Ingrid Marroquin joined the pipe band world in 2009 and was originally a snare and tenor drummer for Schenectady Pipe Band in New York before moving back to Las Vegas.She started taking piano lessons at the age of four and played various percussion instruments in the La Habra High School marching band in La Habra, California.She is a legal assistant and has a B.S. in Criminal Justice Administration.In her spare time, she enjoys playing the piano, drums and reading.
Marcie decided to start playing drums because both of her sons (Braiden and Zach) were in the band and she was at every event anyway, so why not! Turns out she was actually good at it. Marcies favorite things are smiling, hugging strangers and singing when she talks. She can be seen here trying to play a practice chanter for, as she would say, "funzies".
Hey look, it's Maverick! Oh wait, thats Zach Peterson, snare drummer extraordinaire and hunky missionary. Zach started in the band when his brother Braiden started taking bagpipe lessons back in 2004. He was just a little guy then but we made a man out of him. Unfortunately ladies, he is leaving in March 2012 to become a missionary in St Louis, MO. Handsome and caring!
Zach likes dubstep, flybys, beach volleyball and good gaming the guys in the band. He said something about photography and unicyclying but I missed that part as I was focused on those pecs.
