‘Why we joined the union’
Volume 116, No. 3March, 2016
I joined Local 802 to play drums on the hit show “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and do other union jobs, like “America’s Got Talent” at Radio City Music Hall and TV work such as the Today Show. I’m always looking for more Broadway work, so being a member of Local 802 helps that way. My musical goal in New York City is to play good music and good shows with talented musicians, and to enjoy a full and happy musical life in such an amazing city. I recently played an amazing Off Broadway dance musical called “Standard Time” with Mark Stuart Dance Theatre. It was really fun! I will also be subbing with Grammy-winning pop band A Great Big World, which is really exciting. My principal instruments are drum set, hand percussion and world percussion.
