Jeremy Steinkoler

JEREMY STEINKOLER, “A very swinging drummer who’s mastered the art of coordinated independence,” (East Bay Express) has been playing drums professionally for over 25 years. He has crafted a fresh and unmistakable style from an expansive range of influences, from classic New Orleans second-line street beats to Elvin Jones' 'circle of sound,' and is a powerful force driving Mo'Fone with an exciting and unpredictable approach to the drums. His credits as a sideman include performances and recordings with members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, as well as Dave Ellis, Kirk Joseph, Jenna Mammina, Clarence Bucaro, Guru Garage, Valerie Orth, Christie McCarthy, Kevin Beadles Band, Eda Maxym, Hot Links, Phatlip, and dozens of top musicians around the San Francisco Bay Area
