Dominic Joseph (D.J.) Fontana was born March 15, 1931, in Shreveport, Louisiana)he was the Saturday night staff drummer for the Louisiana Hayride.
He always played behind the curtain as in those days drums were considered a musical sacrilege to country. The first time that he played with Elvis presley
and the Blue Moon Boys was in 1954. on October 16, 1954. He still played behind the curtain, but after
that date he played in front with the rest of the band. He joined Elvis' group full-time in August of 1955.

I think D.J. Fontana is an under-rated drummer. He really knew what he was doing.
