Drummer Tim Lassiter joined the band in 2011 and became a driving force behind the music, laying the foundation for the original SWAG beat. Tim is an accomplished drummer with over 25 years of combined experience playing the drums. Tim has performed in a variety of working bands, covering everything from rock, blues, jazz, R&B, and country. In his early days of performing, Tim also played drums in a polka band while living in Pennsylvania. Tim left SWAG in early 2013 to pursue other interests and is currently playing drums in a country rock band called Staggered Rails. Tim also works full time for the State of North Carolina Office of Information Technology Services. We will miss Tim, but we wish him all the best of luck. Maybe one day he’ll join us again on stage for a SWAG reunion.
