Most people talk about all the great national and international bands that played the Drumstick, but Tim was great at nurturing local bands and allowing them to play there as well. I would usually get together with another band I liked, like Holiday, or Cartoon Pupils, and we’d approach Tim and ask for a weeknight to play. He never said no, even though we didn’t have much of a draw. It was a great opportunity for local bands to get some experience appearing on stage in a professional environment. It did a lot of help foster our music scene!
