LLOYD WADE
In the 1970's Lloyd started
playing drums  at Greater
Jerusalem Baptist Church
with the young adult choir.   
The group from the Baptist
Church appeared on
television Sunday mornings
and also toured some of the
Southern States.
LU MARIAN
As a young boy in the jungles of
Puerto Rico, Lu, wearing nothing
but a loin cloth, carved two sticks
out of a branch he cut from the
highest level of tallest tree in the
land using nothing but a sharp
edged rock.
The thunderous drumming sounds
coming from a neighboring tribe
intrigued him, and he proceeded to
carve himself a drum set and beat
some alloy into the perfect
cymbals.  After a few years of
practice, Lu was considered
"kinda good" at the percussive
arts.

Lu has played a great variety of
musical styles and enjoys
performance over all else. He was
happy to join the MJK family in
2014!
Lloyd also played at Kashmere High School where he  toured with the
Stage Band and did some recording, (Zero Point),71-72.
In 2009 they got back together as The Kashmere Reunion Stage Band until  PROP
(Conrad Johnson) the Band leader passed .
Lloyd  met with up Art Lopez of the Mambo Jazz Kings, ended up having the same
love and flair for music, and in 2014 accepted the offer to be the percussion
player for MJK LIVE!
