John Cooke


Playing drums since the age of 10, influenced by every genre of music from Mozart to Motown, Reggae to Rock, Big Band, Metal, Old School R-n-B, and beyond. Served as a musician in the U.S. Army for over 21 years, playing all around the world.
Over 34 years of playing professionally, I have been fortunate to share the stage with such greats as Herbie Mann, Dianne Shure, Jamey Aebersold, Najee, Wilton Felder (The Crusaders, Motown), David Williams (Michael Jackson, Madonna), and many others.
Currently performing with my cover bands KickBack, and The Outlaw Kings in the Virginia Beach area of VA. Also doing freelance live and studio projects as often as I can. I am very proud of this opportunity to represent Soultone Cymbals and I am excited to be an ambassador in my area for these amazing instruments.

My Soultone Set: 

21” Gospel Ride
15” Vintage Crash
16” Extreme Crash
17” Vintage Crash
14” Gospel Hi Hats
