Phil Hendrickson Phil Hendrickson

In Nashville, St. Louis, and around the midwest, Phil has played everything from gospel, country, blues, rock, and orchestral, to (of course) jazz. It all has to swing. “If it doesn't swing, I'm not in it.” Phil alternates between drumset and congas/percussion as the gig demands.

Phil's playing is frequently described as tasty and musical. “My goal is to prove that a drummer is a musician -- not just someone who hangs around behind musicians.”

Phil most often plays with Sarabande Jazz in and around Lincoln, Nebraska.

Gear

Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute toms and bass; PDP "Woody" snare; Pearl Sensitone bronze snare; Remo Fiberskin 3 heads; Vic Firth sticks; Zildjian and Bosphorous cymbals; LP congas and Treeworks chimes.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
