I began my lifelong passion of drumming in the Fall of 1971 at age 10 when I joined the Greece Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps. For the next five years, I toured around New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and Ontario, Canada as we competed in DCI Competitions, performed exhibitions and marched in parades. I played cymbals and bass drum. From 1975 to 1979, I took drum lessons from noted Rochester bandleader Carl Dengler. From 1978 to 1984, I played in local rock bands Silver Quarry and The Mods. In 2001, I became active again when Intrigued was formed. I was in it until about 2008. In 2005, I started marching parades again when I joined what is now Mark Time Marchers. I play snare drum, sometimes bass drum, tri-toms or cymbals. I joined Excelsior Brigade Fife & Drum Corps in 2008 as a snare drummer, and Rochester Scottish Pipes and Drums in 2013, also as a snare drummer. I am still marching with Mark Time Marchers and Excelsior Brigade; I am semi-active with Rochester Scottish Pipes and Drums.
In 2020 I decided to expand my repertoire as a drummer and percussionist. We have a trio in the works, once this Covid situation settles down. I have created a program called, "Fun With Drumming," which is an interactive, fun group experience. I have put together a solo recital of percussion drumming, "Paul's Percussion Rhythms" to create an ambient mood for your gathering, party or event.
