Bass Drum, Co-founder
Actually, it’s Derrick “Oops” Moss. I was born in Charity Hospital and went to Lafayette Elementary (several years before “Lil’ Wayne”). I attended school at McMain Magnet, where I learned how to read and perform concert music, and where I learned to play drums and percussion. I finished my last two years of high school at Alcee Fortier School, where I marched as the tenor drum section leader in the school band with “Slim”, CEO of Cash Money Records.
After graduating high school, I joined the Southern University Marching Band, where I became their Drum Major, (as a freshman!) After graduating from Southern with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Design, I joined the US Air Force Reserve. After basic training, I moved back home to New Orleans, where I joined the “Young Olympia Brass Band”, which was the launching pad for the introduction of the “Soul Rebels” to the world. And the rest, as they say, is HISTORY!
