Jon McCracken | Gallery - Photos, videos, and more.

   Welcome to my gallery! Here you’ll find an extensive collection of live videos including my new drum cam series aptly named Jon’s Drum Cam, #ourstagefortonight where you get to see what I see every night, a home video series born out of pandemic boredom called Jon’s Jrum Jams, and more. Looking through all of these, you may notice a common theme. I’m in all of it! Now if you’re confused by this, maybe it’s because you came across the wrong McCracken. Maybe you were looking for Chet, or Craig. This isn’t the McCracken you’re looking for…

   Regardless, enjoy this collection of photos and videos I’ve put together over the span my career (so far…).


Live shows, music videos, a reel, and more. That’s what you’ll find in this playlist of what the kids call “movin’ pictures.” 


Here is my critically-acclaimed  drum video reel I made that one year we won’t speak of. A compilation of clips from just a few of my live shows and video shoots.

Yes, that is Christone “Kingfish” Ingram in that first clip!


I bought a Zoom Q2n 4K for a drum cam, and damn it I’m gonna use it! Sometimes a compilation, sometimes a full song. Either way, if you wanted to see what it would be like watching one of my shows from the drum riser, here’s where you can fulfill your life’s dream! You’re welcome.

Oh and be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel, and turn on notifications, for future drum cam videos!


It’s time for a special edition of Jon’s Drum Cam, featuring The Who Experience at Farnsworth Park Amphitheater in Altadena, CA! It’s special because it’s a DUAL cam this time! Not only do I have my Zoom Q2n on the right side, but I also have the “B Cam” on the left. Not “B” as in second, but “B” as in Brianne who also happens to be the greatest person ever and the love of my life.

This one is also special because it’s a part of my last performance with The Who Experience. Well, not “last” last, but it’ll be a little while I’m guessing. I absolutely LOVE performing as Keith Moon, and I’m so glad I was able to. Before joining the band in 2018, I always thought about how much fun it would be to be in a Who band. So when the opportunity did come up, I immediately said yes!

Keith Moon is, and always will be in my list of top three favorite drummers, and this song is easily one of my favorite Who songs to play. It’s the perfect mix of fun groove and Keith’s “controlled chaos.” It is a fact that while Ringo Starr was why I chose to play the drums, Moon is why I stuck to it. While I never wanted to follow in his personal life footsteps, his playing was a major inspiration in my early playing. In sessions I did early in my career, my playing was a mix of Keith Moon, Stewart Copeland from The Police, and Roger Taylor from Queen. By that I mean I stole a lot of their drum fills.


Like so many others, I got bored during the pandemic. You know, that pandemic. It was great being a drummer living in an apartment. That was sarcasm, in case that wasn’t apparent in this particular font. So I decided to buy an electric kit and jam out to some songs I really enjoy playing. And I called this series… Jon’s Jrum Jams! Behold, my brief stint as what people seem to be calling a YouTube drummer.


What happens when you pause a moving picture? You get a regular picture! And I’ve got plenty on here. I’ve even put them into categories for you! There are pics of me, and pics of me with friends. A series of photos taken from behind my kit on previous stages over the years. It’s even got it’s own hashtag, #ourstagefortonight! Last but not least, pics of my drums!


Kind of self-explanatory, here’s just a taste of my Instagram! If you’d like to see more, you can follow me HERE.
