Already a professional drummer in Boston, Craig visits a friend in L.A. and decides to restart his career on the west coast. While playing and gigging as much as possible, Craig lands in band whose bass player had connections with Josh Groban.
At this point, Josh was just starting his career and Craig had the opportunity to audition for Josh's band. After a little research, Craig took the audition and landed the gig!
