Steve Gadd Band ft. Kevin Hays, Jimmy Johnson, Michael Landau and Walt Fowler play Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley Nov. 29-Dec. 2nd.
Gadd established himself with the great Chuck Mangione, and then spent three years in the Army prior to coming to New York City for studio work in 1971. Gadd rapidly rose to prominence on the studio scene. His resume includes a variety of artists, including Carly Simon, Phoebe Snow, Aretha Franklin, Al DiMeola, Stanley Clarke, Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Scott, Frank Sinatra, and Stuff. After a period of touring and recording with his own band, the Gadd Gang, he provided the spark that ignited Paul Simon’s South African inspired, Grammy Award-winning recordings and dynamic live touring band. Gadd continues to be an in-demand drummer as well as touring with his own band.
