Brad Staats

Brad Staats has had a long musical career as a percussionist and is currently the Principal Percussionist for the LCSO. He has been playing drums/percussion since fifth grade and likes classic rock as much as classical music. 

Aside from music, Brad has been working as a Manufacturing Management Consultant for forty years, where he helps companies improve how they run their business. Brad has been married for thirty-seven years to his wife, who is a veterinary technician. In his free time, Brad enjoys spending time with his wife, son, daughter, and grandkids and working on DIY projects for his home and car. 

Brad has been with the LCSO for twenty-nine years and said playing percussion is the best because he gets to play with all of the toys!
