Drummer for French Canadian Blues Rock pioneers Offenbach, Mike Landry is one of Quebec's hottest up and coming drummers! Starting out at the tender age of 3, he had continued to pursue drums and music all his life. Although he is member of the Vic firth family since 2017, he has used Vic Firth products throughout his career. He also endorses Pearl Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Remo Drumheads to name a few.

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceThe first time I played with Offenbach in a big festival setting was very moving to me. It didn't unlock anything in my playing, but it confirmed to me that all the sacrifices I had made in my life paid off and I ended up right where I wanted to be: playing for professional level band as a professional level drummer.
What Drives Your Creativity?I love listening to other drummers out there, pushing the envelope of what drumming can be. However, when it comes down to the job, I try to make sure that the part I play makes sense in the context of the song, all the while keeping my style, sound and identity present. Not always easy to do, but very rewarding when you know you nailed it.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?I always loved Vic Firth sticks! After trying a few others out there, nothing ever came close to the solid quality, reliability and value that Vic Firth offers. Affordable and readily available anywhere, and my god... the VAST amount of products they offer. Put simply: if you can't find it in the Vic Firth catalog, you don't need it!
