As a Drummer, Tech., and sound engineer I carry A LOT of stuff at all times, and finding the right gear to carry it in was a pain because nothing was durable and didn't last, until I found Gruv Gear! I was beyond grateful when I found Gruv Gear, and wont be using anything else!

My name is Joe Mendez, I am a drummer, stage manager, tech, and sound engineer based out of Los Angeles. But I have been very fortunate to be able to travel the world doing what I love. I have performed in Germany, Italy, Rome, Guam, and Iraq for the troops, just to name a few. My most recent work has been with Jennifer Lopez, Tori Kelly, and Andy Vargas. But I have also been privileged to share the stage with artist such as Keith Sweat, Joe, Justin Timberlake, Marc Anthony band, and many others. I am also the leader and drummer of a successful top 40 band. Which performs 5 to 6 nights a week at different venues, Casinos, and private events. This business is growing rapidly and we are receiving much more exposure every day. With the years I have learned to adapt and play many different types of music, but my specialty is R&B, Latin, Pop, and Rock. Drumming is my passion and I will continue to thrive doing what I love.
