I first joined the union when I was 16 and recently renewed my membership in Local 802. I see music as part of my soul’s journey, and my ongoing musical goal is to make the best contribution to the arts that I can. I’m a drummer and percussionist who has enjoyed a lifelong career, playing everything from Broadway to performances with Aretha Franklin. I studied with Warren Smith and Bernard Purdie, and at SUNY College at Old Westbury. I founded Nassau Performing Arts, where I serve as a teaching artist, and I also created my own company, Revels-Bey Music.
