"Why I use Scorpion? The perfect weight distribution and grip makes me feel I have weapons in my hands that allow me to play my best with more confidence than any other sticks by far. My chops are faster, my sound is more dominating, and I swing/groove better. The durability is at least double of any other brand."
Alan "Wild Alan" Hannapel is one of the most sought after pop/rock/country drummers in the Chicago Area. His unique talent, high energy, engaging personality, profound work ethic, and unquestioned reliability make him a great asset to any project in which he’s involved. In addition to drumming, Alan is also well versed in voice and keyboard, making him a true musician as opposed to just a drummer.
Alan is extraordinarily adaptable in musical styles. His versatility has taken him around the world playing jazz overseas, and performing orchestral percussion while earning his music degree. Don’t allow this to fool you, however. He’s able to execute with power and speed that equals or exceeds most metal drummers. Recently, Alan was voted co-winner in the Best Drummer category by the readers of a leading Chicago music magazine. Alan’s passion for performing and recording is surpassed by no one, and his aggressive yet dynamic approach is simultaneously very musical and entertaining.
Equally as important as talent is character, and Alan undoubtedly has that covered. He is very cooperative, can be counted on with unshakeable confidence, and is accommodative to change. Often the first to arrive and last to leave, Alan is always fully prepared, even in situations that allow only minimum preparation.
All the aforementioned attributes of Alan would make him a great fit for your touring and recording needs.
