Compositional sophistication, technical brilliance, sonic opulence and virtuosity in improvisation reached new, dizzying heights in the Dave Weckl Band. Dave Weckl, revered as a guru of fusion drumming by drummers around the world since Chick Corea's "Electric Band," picks up where the Electric Band left off in its legendary early days. Dave Weckl's drumming sets standards more than ever - in its rhythmic sophistication, sonic elegance, technical perfection and infectious joy of playing.
Dave was born on January 8, 1960 in St. Louis/Missouri. At the age of eight, the future innovator began to take an interest in drumming. He worked in the Michel Camilo Band, with which he recorded five albums. Before he knew it, the top drummer was drumming the 1983 reunion tour of singing bards Simon and Garfunkel. Subsequently, Mr. Weckl grooved as a recording artist for artists as diverse as Diana Ross, Robert Plant, Lee Ritenour, Chick Corea, Mike Stern, George Benson and many others. Weckl brings his longtime partners to Basel. A super cast band!
