MATTIAS BLANCK | DRUMS & VOCALS
|Mattias hails from across the Atlantic,
and joins Family Groove Company all the way from Helsinborg, Sweden.
His early playing experience includes time spent with the famed Helsinborg
Marimba Band, a group that brought him to all corners of Europe, and
his familiarity with the marimba has no doubt contributed to the particularly
musical drumming he brings to FGC. He later became part of the Swedish
Army Drum Corps, where his talents were quickly acknowledged with
an appointment to the position of Music Director, but Mattias sought
the opportunity that the U.S. had to offer. He moved to Los Angeles
to attend the Musicians Institute, and he quickly became one of the
busiest drummers in the school. Mattias had his pick of projects,
but he felt something special when he met Adam, Janis, and Jordan,
and found a second home in the rehearsal room with his new partners.
When it became clear that Chicago was to be FGC's new home, Mattias
was on board without hesitating, eager to take in another one of this
country's great cities, and determined to keep FGC groovin' along,
and in the right tempo.
