Pat Tomek (drums)
Pat Tomek has played in dozens, if not hundreds, of bands over a career spanning more than 40 years. He has twice been inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame. First, in 2011, with The Rainmakers, doing eight albums of original material between 1986 and 2014, the first three on Mercury Records, including MTV videos and extended tours with Berlin, Big Country, Kansas, and the Doobie Brothers, and much touring as a headliner in Europe.
Pat was inducted again in 2019 with an earlier band, The Secrets*, who recorded singles on the legendary power pop label Titan Records and an album co-produced by Stan Lynch, drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Pat has played in many cover bands as well as original music projects, and has engineered/produced many demos and albums in his home studio over the last 30 years. He has been part of a number of tribute projects for the Beatles, Wings, and Elton John. Playing with ZZ-KC has allowed him to explore his bluesier side, as always in a quest to deliver the most authentic experience possible.
