Band to Join, Drums.


Barret Harvey began his percussive journey at age 10 thanks to world-renowned puppet rock drummer, Animal. He later refined his tastes falling in love with the styles of Buddy Rich, Mick Fleetwood, Stewart Copeland, Mitch Mitchell, John Bonham, Vinnie Coliauta and Steve Gadd. Young Barret could be found in front of the record player or behind his drum set….not much has changed. Parental supervision, a few years, a few whiskers, and a few drum lessons (Jerry Drowden, Mike Coers, Mark Joscher) have made him a man. He still attributes his massive sound to Yamaha. Barret has had the privilege of being a Yamaha artist since 1997. “If I didn’t play Yamaha Drums, I’d play the French Horn. My drums are packed, loaded and shipped as hard as I play them. They always look, sound and feel the best.”

As a first call recording artist, Barret has added his distinct drumming approach to countless recordings—in all styles. “ I just want people to hear my love for music”. Barret’s commercial success has carried him to the likes of Disney, Ford, Nintendo, Coors, Budweiser, Gatorade, Nextel, Kraft, Allstate, NASCAR, and many others. As a sought after live performer Barret has traveled the world playing international festivals, large stages and top venues. Catch him if you can or reach him if you would like at barretharvey
