scott brooks: Drums
Scott's lifelong passion for music began at an early age with concert, marching and jazz band. He continued his education graduating from world-renowned Musicians Institute (MI) under Chuck Flores, Joe Porcaro, as well as private instruction with Michael Curotto.
Scott is a multi-instrumentalist, plays saxophone, banjo, guitar, bass, and is also a vocalist. This brings a melodic sensibility to the drums. He has also written, recorded and produced his own music for other projects he is involved with. While emulating famous drummers, he is able to transform into the character being protrayed. Scott's theory is "there is an element of theater needed for tribute shows that raises the audience's experience. After all, people also hear with their eyes."
