Official GIO Cymbals Endorsed Artist
Charles Thomas

Endorsed Artist Charles Thomas of The Rescue Band and OneNoize at the Gathering – Fort Wayne, IN!

31 years ago, he first picked up drum sticks. Almost 10 years ago, he received his first endorsement with Evan’s drumheads while on tour with Grave Robber. Almost 5 months ago he met Ryan Gio and, once again; history was changed. After answering an add on Craigslist of all places, while searching for a better cymbal from a better company, he fell in love with music all over again. Not only did Gio’s Definitive series go far beyond his expectations, but they far surpassed their reputation as Best for the Best. Their sound, resilience and feel leave no desire in musical applications unsatisfied. Now, armed with these new cymbals, Charles is ready to unleash the heavy southern influenced rocking sounds of The Rescue Band upon the masses. 2020 is gone, 2021 is gonna be better! The Lord is good always, and always the Lord is good!
Thank you, Ryan and Gio for being the best for the best!
