He served as the percussionist for a band ( Groove Crew) out of Dayton for 1 year where he received some good experiences.

For the last two years Pounce has devoted his time between two bands; fo/mo/deep of Columbus, Oh and The Special Band of Cincinnati Ohio. Pounce has had the honor of sharing the stage with Roy Ayers and opened up for Mint Condition.These experiences has been motivating, stimulating and has made him continue to strive to be the best percussionist he can be.
