Justin Chesarek

Justin Chesarek is all about swing.

It's what drives him, it's what makes him strike drum heads with well-composed intensity, and it’s why some of the best jazz musicians in Atlanta keep him on call.

Since arriving in Atlanta in August, 2008, Justin, a transplant from rural Pennsylvania, has made quite a name for himself.

He isn't your average session drummer. While regularly playing gigs with Kemba Cofield, Joe Gransden, and Gary Motley, Justin also flexes his composing muscles while traversing the east coast with his group The Central Focus Trio and maintaining a regular Wednesday night gig at Churchill Grounds, Atlanta's premier jazz club, with the Justin Chesarek Quintet.
