Alex Bankuti


My name is Alexander Bankuti. I have been playing drums since i was thirteen (I'm 29 now). I come from a musical family and grew up listening to classic rock, jam bands (Grateful Dead, Phish etc.) and Frank Zappa (a category all his own). I enjoy a wide variety of musical genres including jazz, fusion, blues, punk, metal, funk, modern rock, classic country, folk, and classical. I am most comfortable in a rock setting but am willing and able to learn a wide array of music. I love playing drums. I am a fast learner and always welcome a challenge.
