Give the Drummer Some!

Isaac picked-up a pair of sticks when he was 11 years old where he began playing worship services in his dad's Pentecostal church. Upon arriving in Orange County as a teenager with his family in the early ‘80s, Isaac kept himself busy drumming at his church. He always kept his finger on the pulse of the musical happenings and he continued to hone his craft, playing a variety of musical styles.

Eager to follow his Jazz leanings, Isaac joined the school's Jazz band at Fullerton High School, holding the drum seat for their Jazz Ensemble as well as their Vocal Jazz rhythm section just down the hallway. After high school, he set his sights on Fullerton Community College across the street, knowing their reputation for putting out highly recognized Jazz bands. As he finished his studies there he freelanced, playing with a variety of groups and/or independent artists, enjoying playing a myriad of styles. Since that Gospel music introduction at the beginning, he has been fortunate to study and play a variety of styles. To this day, authenticity of style continues to be his pursuit for every project he's asked to join.

After discovering the drums, he soon moved to hand percussion. Isaac recounts that one night in his late teens a Poncho Sanchez concert absolutely pushed him over the edge! He told himself that night, "I'VE GOT TO PLAY IN A BAND LIKE THAT!" Even if all he did was play a cowbell in a band like Poncho's, that would be enough! Since then, he has been creating music with a variety of hand percussion instruments.  Although that first introduction to percussion was Latin Jazz, Isaac quickly applied himself to both its traditional and modern uses.
