The band members made him an "offer he couldn't refuse."

Mike Poulin - Drums

Mike has honed his skills and become one of the most respected drummers on the Gulf Coast. To quote a local music magazine, "Mike is the backbone and driving force of the BUSHHOUNDS, the hottest band in Tampa Bay today."
