Pierre Restel


Band to Join.


I played in my first band when I was 12 years old. I attended Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA, for two years in the Drums program between 1995-1997. After that, I majored in music for two years with emphasis on Jazz Drums Performance at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, CA. I have plenty of live and studio experience in Los Angeles, CA. I currently live in Plano, TX, and I'm looking for a band to play in. A gigging cover band is fine too. I am all about the groove. :-)

There are many influences and it's difficult to list them all. Instead of listing drummers as influences I will list some bands/artists that have inspired me greatly throughout my drumming journey. They are (in no particular order): Led Zeppelin, Rush, Genesis, Soundgarden, Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones, Death Cab For Cutie, U2, The Police, The Smashing Pumpkins, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Toto, Sting, Steely Dan, Live, Foo Fighters, Audioslave, Incubus, Taking Back Sunday, Godsmack; I LOVE Jazz!
