Adonis P. Rose

Adonis Rose, hailed by New Orleans Magazine as a “Contemporary Jazz All Star,” is one of the most sought after drummers in jazz today. He has played with some of the world’s most esteemed jazz artists, from nine-time Grammy winning trumpeter Wynton Marsalis to three-time Grammy winning vocalist Dianne Reeves to jazz/pop entertainer Harry Connick Jr., himself a three-time Grammy winner. Indeed, Rose’s beats reach further than the jazz world. Pioneering rap group Public Enemy, soul diva Chaka Kahn and the late R&B chart-topper Gerald Levert have asked Rose to tour with them. Born in New Orleans in 1975, Rose was practically raised to be a drummer. His father was a drummer and gave Adonis his first drum set when he was just 2 years old. Even before graduating from New Orleans’ Warren Easton High School, Rose was refining his skills at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and jamming with the likes of Clyde Kerr, who headed the jazz program at the NOCCA, and Nicholas Payton, winner of the 1997 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo. After graduating from high school in 1992, Rose toured with trumpeter Terence Blanchard. Rose received a four year scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
