Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a Pro Drummer who has supported and toured nationally and internationally with major artists The Commodores, Nicolas Bearde, Betty Griffin-Keller, "First Lady of Gospel", Willie Chambers, Bernard Rhone, Khani Cole, Peter Storn and a list of up and coming newly signed artists for Hollywood industry showcases and regular Harrahs and Red Rock Resort Casino residencies. Blessed to grace the stage with notable smooth jazz artists r&b, gospel/christian artists, choirs and various televised appearances (i.e Saturday Night Live, Top of the Pops, etc). Recorded and rehearsed at Abbey Roads Studios, Power Station Studio and S.I.R. nationally. Feel free to reach out to me here or at veronicahardeman29(at).

I am well versed at supporting artists for touring, television, radio, live venues, industry promotional showcases, events and judging Guitar Center Drum-Off. I'm sensitive to other band members, a quick study, have a good ear (in-ear monitors...lol), easy-going, have top-of-the-line equipment, and I can sing background, as well as create beats, loops, songwrite and arrange.

I have gained plenty of live performance and recording experience in large venues and events like WEA, Motown, A&M, Capital Records, NAMM, Whiskey, Roxy, Troubador, Hotel Cafe, House of Blues, many international Odens/Stadiums and numerous large church concerts and events. I also have a large (100+) list of covers experience also to pull from for various genres too. I play, compose and arrange R&B, Jazz, Funk, Gospel, Rock, Country Rock, Pop, Reggae, Alternative, Hip Hop, Latin, Samba and Bossa Nova. I enjoy playing everything from Miles to Boney James to The Muse to Rhianna to Sade to James Brown, Acoustic to Neo-Soul, Electronica to Hammond B-3 Trio, Wes Montgomery to Cassandra Wilson modes to the latest Gospel/Christian. I can hold down and build on a groove or lock in with a track, breaks, orchestration, dynamics and solos, but can also play a lot of frills (show-time) and embellish when it's called for. Check out a couple of my beats. I'm playing a hybrid kit (electronic drums/percussion) on most with acoustic kick and snare and hat applications. If you need live quality drums, beats or percussion tracks for your project feel free to reach out to me.
You can also check me out at my
1Musical1 Stage Performance Consulting, Coaching and Mentoring where I have worked with various up and coming bands, MC's and vocal and christain artists.
