Marc Patch

DRUM TECH

 

 

Marc was a Drum Tech for Chris Mekow from 1984 to 1993.

Most of those years were with the Royal Court of China, but also include: the Enemy, J.T. Blanton, & Rockhead.

In the 80's the Royal Court opened for several major bands such as: Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, & the Kinks.

Here is the collection of back stage passes and an incomplete itinerary of those tours.
