Joey Heredia

Joey Heredia is a remarkable drummer who blends a multitude of styles, timing, and unbelievable skill to achieve a unique level of playing making him one of the best in the business. His credits include luminaries like Stevie Wonder, Sheila E, Sergio Mendez, Herb Alpert, Tania Maria, Scott Henderson, Frank Gambale, and Dianne Reeves.

It's not surprising that Joey became a musician. His mother was a famous singer throughout Mexico, Central and South America in the 1940's and 1950's, and his father, a drummer, was a session player in Los Angeles. Although this appears the perfect recipe for creating a great musician, it wasn't. Joey's mother retired when he was born, and when Joey was only 4 his father had a stroke ending his father's drumming. Growing up in East Los Angeles was definitely rough, and his mother was extremely cautious of Joey's desire to become a musician. She knew exactly how tough the business was and wasn't sure about her son following that path.
