I recently had the opportunity to speak with drummer John Tacon of the New Jersey-based alternative band Brick + Mortar about the one favorite piece of gear in his arsenal. The duo has been carving out a niche and making a name for themselves through lots of hard work and touring, including having shared the stage with bands the likes of Anthony Green and making a statement at last year’s Lollapalooza. Here is what Tacon had to say.
