ABOUT

I'm a professional, freelance, session drummer who enjoys filling in and pinch-hitting at rehearsals, live performances, and recording sessions. I have experience playing everything from Rock, Classic Rock, R&B, Jazz, Country, Tejano, Latin, Reggae, Bluegrass, Zydeco, etc. I often perform with local bands in and around the Houston, TX metro area (some travel as well).

What can you expect of me as your session drummer? Never missing a rehearsal, recording or live performance; always arriving early (being on-time is the same as being late to me); being fully prepared to rehearse or play the entire set list for the session; and, demonstrating a positive and teamwork-oriented attitude.

In other words, being dependable and reliable are as important to me as being skilled behind the drum set. Professionalism should always accompany sharp skills.

If you are interested in a sample of some of my work, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Rex Ramirez
