Archives For Pro WorshipDrummers
A few days ago we wrote about the passing of a great drumming legend, Marvin McQuitty. Today I had to privilege of tuning to the livestream of Marvin McQuitty’s Homecoming (Memorial Service) and boy was it incredible to hear all about this incredible drummer, worshiper, husband, father, friend, and man of God.
The drumming community lost a beloved friend on September 11 with the passing away of Marvin McQuitty Jr. According to drummerworld.com he battled a severe illness.
My memories of Marvin’s playing were mostly from the incredible Fred Hammond days (Pages of Life 1 & 2) but I also had the chance to here him fill in with Israel & New Breed after Chris Coleman accepted another opportunity.
After the show I had the opportunity of chatting with Marvin and he certainly was a humble, God-fearing man.
Our love and prayers go out to his family as they face the reality of losing a loved one.
Marvin, you will be missed!

In our second portion of the interview I talk drum gear with Planetshakers drummer Mike Webber. I’ve taken the time to write it out too so you can use it as a reference. Enjoy!
