Demetri Hurwitz

High school student who plays the lead drums for high school Jazz Band. Had a teacher for the first 2.5 years of drumming and learned primarily jazz. Now play with random musicians in the area and study drumming with a friend who recently graduated college with a minor in drumming. Very into improv, funk, jam band, rock, anything goes really. Very capable player, i do recordings occasional with a home recording system, but i do not have a stable band at the moment.


I use a Mapex M-Series drum kit with Zildjian A Custom cymbals. I've got a snare, bass drum, floor tom, 2 rack toms, a hi hat, a ride, a crash, and a splash.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
