Tommy Igoe

For more than 20 years, Tommy Igoe, has been blazing a trail in the music industry as a sideman, band leader, and educator. His Birdland Big Band is the hottest band in the world's biggest music market, and Tommy leads the band's sold out shows with the same passion and energy that has made him one of the world's top drummers.

Tommy lives and works in New York, but has recorded and toured internationally with artists such as: Stanley Jordan, Art Garfunkel, Lauryn Hill, Dave Grusin, New York Voices, Patti Austin, Mark Mancina, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and David Wilcox. Recently, he wrote the drum book for Disney's legendary Broadway musical, The Lion King, integrating the modern day drum set into the heavily-percussive African score.

Add to that a list of superb guests, including trumpeter Randy Brecker and percussionist Karl Perazzo, and it's clear that a wild ride awaits. “ All About Jazz
