Greetings and Salutations, I'm happy to announce some shows I have coming up with Sandoval Band, and Eliot Lewis from Hall and Oates. I've also been busy in the recording studio cutting drums for different artists I'm working with. I'm currently working with Joe Miller in the studio as well as Jean Sandoval. There are also some albums that will be released soon, and will announce them as they are. There is a new record that I played on that was just recently released this year. You can purchase that record by Jaquescoley from my discography page. Just click the picture to purchase. The song I played on is a cover of Sade's "Tattoo." The song is being played and well in over 70 countries. It's being played so much that Sade herself heard it and absolutely loves our version
Hi everyone, just an update on what I've been up to. Following my exciting trip out to LA for the NAMM show, I picked up an endorsement with my favorite drumstick company- Regal Tip. These guys make great sounding products and have the feel I like in my hands. I encourage all you drummers out there to check them out.
I have had a busy start to the year, between hitting up the studio with some fantastic artists, finishing recording a song with one of my bands 6 Train Soldier, and booking shows with a few other bands. I will be playing the bar circuit with The Screamin Eagle Band and was invited to play the Hartford Jazz Festival this summer with the talented Nelson Garcia. Hope to catch you at some shows this year and keep on keeping on! Blessings.
Hi everyone! A new year is upon us once again, going into 2016. Hope this finds you all well. On my end, I am really excited about some albums that were released in 2015, and I've been really busy in the studio with a lot of recording sessions for different artists with some releases due out in 2016. A few names that these sessions were done with include The Emmanuel Rivera Project, Black Garden, Eugene Jacquescoley, and reuniting with 6 Train Soldier for a full length album, plus a lot more. Will keep you posted as things move along. Blessings to all of you in the new year. Cheers, Chuck Peterson
Hey friends. The new year has been a good one so far. I've been keeping busy doing gigs and recording sessions for many artists. Recently recorded with studio recording artist Manny Rivera for some jazz and neo-soul instrumentals. Finished recording a song for Funky Boy's new album Soul Purpose that is now available on cd baby. I play on track 9, which is called Keystroke. It's hitting the jazz billboard charts worldwide, so definitely check it out. More news coming soon. God bless.
Hope the new year has been kind to you. As for me, I am very excited about what is to come in 2014... there are some new gigs added in the shows section. As some of you might know, I have been working with James Chappell III, who was a contestant on NBC's The Winner Is. Also I have been working with 6 Train Soldier and looking to hit the studio soon. Keep a lookout- Wed. Jan 8, 2014, I will be doing the PPRN online radio show. Once the podcast is up it will be posted here on the site. Hope to see you all soon! God bless.
Hello and hope everyone is having a great spring. Just stopping by to fill you in with some exciting things going on. I just got back from a an amazing recording session in Florida for a worship band called Currency of Heaven. I can't wait for you all to hear it. I recently finished working with Emmanuel Rivera on a jazz worship album featuring Salvador's lead singer, Nic Gonzales. And I am proud and honored to announce that I have picked up an endorsement with Beato Bags. This is an amazing company and a great product. Much more on the horizon so please check back soon, and take a peek at the calendar, as there are some new gigs posted. Be blessed.
RIP Ricky Lawson
I had the honor and pleasure of meeting the incredibly talented Ricky Lawson at the 2010 NAMM show. Sadly, Ricky passed recently. He was so humble and grateful for the amazing career he had, playing with greats such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and more. RIP, Ricky.
