My name is Deacon Lloyd Stukes but everyone calls me “Stukes”. Playing the tambourine has always been my ministry since I was 7 years old. In the early ’70s, there was a Tambourine Band that was created at Antioch COGIC in Harlem, New York by Deacon Frank Davis; that inspired me to take up the instrument and begin to hone my skills. My beloved mother, Mother Stukes started a Tambourine Band in the ’90s called “Miriam’s Band” which allowed me to practice playing even more. My early beginnings have given me a foundation that has sustained me for over 38 years as a premier tambourine player!
My Passion & Purpose…
My testimony ignites my Anointing! Every song I play on, I am able to apply the lyrics to my life and that’s what gives me strength and stamina. My motto is to never refuse anyone a Tambourine. I enjoy providing instruments for children and adults alike! I enjoy keeping an Arsenal of tambourines to take with me to every service because praise is a weapon!
- Provide tambourine/percussion playing at Banquets, Concerts, Home-going and Church services.
- Provide up to 3 quality, signature tambourines in churches across the county.
- Provide tambourine lessons (beginning at 30-minute intervals) for ages six (6) and up. Please note, prices may vary.
… My desire is for God to always get the Glory. Pray for me as I play for you. I would love to be apart of your next worship experience!
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.Psalm 98:4 King James Version (KJV)
