Pete Zimmer

Since his arrival to New York City over a decade ago in June of 2001, Pete Zimmer has established himself amongst the forefront as one of the top-call young drummers in New York's jazz scene. Born and raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Zimmer has made his mark locally and internationally as a versatile and articulate drummer, bandleader, sideman, composer, educator, and record label entrepreneur.

Before moving to New York, Zimmer studied both at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois and also at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where he earned his bachelors degree. At the Conservatory he had the good fortune to have apprenticeships with master musicians such as Danilo Perez, Cecil McBee, George Garzone, Bob Moses, Jerry Bergonzi, and Bob Brookmeyer.
