I am a freelance percussionist studying music in Manhattan. I go between NYC and Dallas, Texas. My availability will, of course, depend on which city I am in at the time. I'm happy to provide background music on marimba, cover drum set parts for bands, fill any spot in a pit/orchestra, etc. My gear is in both Dallas and New York, so the instruments that I can personally provide will vary.
What to Expect
If hired to play a solo act, I will most likely be playing solo marimba, typically music that is very tonal and easy to listen to. Anything from Bach to Brazilian. As a group performer, I can fill whatever is needed and play as little or as much as is preferred.
Depending on where I'm living/keeping equipment, I may not be able to provide my own equipment. I hope this is never the case, but there may be an instance where I will request that a venue provides its own drum set. If this isn't possible, I do my best to find my way around such small obstacles.
I do not have a fixed set list, even for solo performances, but some examples would be: Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, Ney Rosauro's 3 preludes, Children's Corner, etc.
