Drums, Other Percussion, Background Singer.


Tony Vella was the leader, Founder, Drummer and wore all hats for “Mestizo Classic Latin Rock” in the Bay Area for nearly 15 years. A true SF Native born and raised.

I’m a bit burnt out on running a band and now just looking to just drum, play a little percussion and maybe a little vocal backgrounds. I have a good knowledge of audio and own all my equipment, responsible and have reliable transpo.

Looking for casuals or a band that is into Latin Rock ( not nuevo ) in the immediate San Francisco area that plays the familiar classic latin rock or similar original material that I can easily sit it with.

I work in the film industry and cannot commit full time to a band, just looking for sub gigs and casuals. Also can scale down and play a trap set with percussion.
