ABOUT

INTRO: Hello, I'm Bruno and I've been a drummer for nearly 20 years now. People often use the term "pocket drummer" when describing me and my playing style. I find the groove quickly and settle in nicely. As a Christian, I've been a worship band drummer for 18 years and have served weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly at several churches as an on staff drummer. My main musical influences stem from 70s/80s/90s Rock and Pop along with the driving back beats of EDM.

HISTORY AS A DRUMMER: Surprise! I'm a left-handed drummer. Although, I'm dominantly right-handed, I'm for the most part, ambidextrous. I was in Marching Band in High School where I was under the tutelage of former/current Drum Corps instructors from the Cadets. Because of their instruction and tutoring, I was able to develop advanced techniques in odd time signatures, unique sticking patterns, and dynamic range.

I have also served in a worship band since the moment I started drumming. This has allowed me to approach drumming in a different way. As a musician in a worship band, your job isn't to show off and draw attention to yourself, it's to blend in with what the music calls for and support the music and message as a whole. This, coupled with my background in marching band, has allowed me to play quieter than most drummers (great for smaller venues) with finesse and a metronome like sense of time.

OBJECTIVE: I'm currently looking to fill the role as a session/studio drummer or fill-in / gig drummer for the PDX area. I'm interested in playing with or joining cover/tribute bands of any of the influences listed below, including 70s/80s/90s Pop and Rock, assisting with churches in need of a drummer, and any paying gigs that could use my services.
