Steve Gadd has got to be one of the best examples of a professional drummer still around today. He plays the part humbly with solid timing and groove, and knows that when it’s his time to shine on the band stand  he can then let loose.

Steve has played, performed and recorded with the best names in the music business and has shared his time and talent with drummers all around the world.
