Floyd McCollum

(Drums)

Floyd got his first drum for Christmas when he was 2 years old, but didn’t take drumming seriously until he was 8.  In high school, he played in various music programs, winning a stage band festival "Outstanding Rhythm Soloist" award and the "Louis Armstrong Jazz Award".  At 16, he joined the musician’s union and played drums and percussion in concert bands, marching bands, jazz bands, orchestras, and churches.  It wasn’t until after college that Floyd played in rock & roll bands—both cover and original bands.  It was also during this time that he built a recording studio, and founded (with two friends) the original band "The Mating Index".  The group gained a modest following on college radio, and opened for “Modern English” and “The Ramones”. 

After relocating to Florida, Floyd joined the praise band (now known as "Band of Angels") at the Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration.  In addition, he became a member of the Corpus Christi Catholic Church C7 contemporary worship band.

In 2015, Floyd joined CEONEO--recording and assisting with production on their soon-to-be released third album, “thirtyseven”.
