I'm a professional drummer who has been playing for over 20 years. Throughout the years, I've had the opportunity to play for some great people. I play Gospel, Rock, R&B, Hip-Hop, Funk, and Soul. I'm a fast learner and always on time. Look forward to working with you.
There are no shortage of great drummers in NYC. You can't walk down the street without tripping over one. That being said, Ayana possesses several traits that make her stand out from the pack. Aside from having the technical skills needed to play her instrument at a professional level, she has a great pocket. In addition, she has the ability to hold back and just groove instead of playing gratuitous fills and needlessly complicated parts. And her ability to learn quickly and retain information is top notch. She just save the day for me recently by filling in for my regular drummer, after not gigging with me for 6 months and having no rehearsal.
If all of that isn't enough, she's always early, prepared and one of the easiest people to get along with. I hire her every chance I get. You should too.
