My name is Vinny Damaio. I’ve enjoyed a career as a professional drummer, percussionist, drum instructor, composer and record producer for over 20 years. I’ve performed and or recorded with such acclaimed musical artist as "Jody Whatley", "Wilson Phillips", "China Beach" TV series "Adam Ant", "Ronnie Laws", "Jeff Golub", "Warren Hill", "Diana Krall", "Pawn Stars" TV series and many others. I received my formal education at the “Berklee College of Music” in Boston, MA and “The Jamie Faunt School of Music” in LA, CA. I enjoy playing many different styles of music ranging from Jazz to Rock and currently live in Middletown, NY. I’m looking to connect with some musicians with similar experience and interests. I am currently working on a home studio/rehearsal/practice space. I would love to get together and make some music, write, record and explore our creativity and maybe even play a few gigs. I’m experienced with & enjoy playing many different styles of music.
