The New Year Shall Bring Great News!

Hard-hitting drummer and SilverFox endorser Jeff McCormack is quite excited about the new year coming up. His current band, Fifth Angel, is about to unleash a new website, some band news, some new press, and much more on January 1, 2011! Be sure to keep checking the Fifth Angel website for details.

This band is only one of Jeff’s many endeavors through the years. He has been featured on more than 60 albums released worldwide, toured the world several times over, was inducted into the Christian Drummer Hall of Fame in 2009 (look for another SilverFox endorser Charles Shelton Jr. too!), and he also teaches a very successful youth ensemble called “Metal Shop” in Washington State.

Jeff likes to rock the SilverFox 5A-N.

Check out Jeff performing with his band Fifth Angel.
