“The Amazing Race Tour”

Once again I made another visit to the European music scene. I called this tour “The Amazing Race”. We did three back to back performances in three different cities. That required early lobby calls and long car rides. In this short tour I was performing with the Jeremy Pelt Quintet along with JD Allen on tenor sax, Dwayne Burno on bass and Xaiver Davis on piano.
9/12 we performed at the Festival de Jazz in Colmar, France. It was a big venue and a lot of people came out to support.
9/13 We made our way over to The Art Gallery in Reutlingen, Germany. This space was originally designed to hold art exhibits. With the relation between art and music our performance was well received.  It’s actually a great idea to mix art forms together. It allows each audience to communicate with a common language… improvisation.
We ended the tour in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 9/14. The Netherlands was the first place I traveled to in Europe back in June 2011. The North Sea Jazz Club is primarily a new club (4 months old). The management was outstanding. The staff made it their duty to make sure the band was comfortable.
Overall, the tour was a success. Grateful to see life on the other side of the world. Stay tuned, I will be back next month. Check out JB Dates for more info. If you’r in the area, come out. I would love to see you.

Welcome to my Official Website

I’m pleased to present and share my life as a musician. I wanted to create something I can call my own.  (Being a full-time musician) This musical journey has taken me all over the world, rub shoulders with great musicians, and have amazing stories that I will hold on to forever. With this website I hope that you will receive more insight of my artistry, my music, and understand why I drum.  I recognize that I have a gift from God and I must share it with the masses.
I will constantly post updates, videos, further gigs, and songs. Feel free to leave comments or questions on my page. I will be happy to respond.
