Wednesday, May 16, 2012 [Jupiter, FL] – Daniel East, the drummer known for his animated performances with many artists in Rock, Soul, Blues, and Cajun – Zydeco, recently signed with Aquarian Drumheads to endorse their products. With a background as a live and session drummer, East is also an accomplished audio engineer with a reputation for excellence in the sound and tone of his drums.
“I did my homework,” reports East. “For years, I’ve tried every brand [and type] of drum heads to find that perfect combination, and only Chris [Brady] delivered what I’d hoped for. I want to sound like ‘me’ and have the feel be as right as the sound. This was an easy choice since I always listen for the best sound first.”
Daniel East performs with Iko-Iko, the Blues band that appears in the films Cape Fear and Contact.The band worked with artists in a variety of styles including Ron Wood (Rolling Stones), Muddy Waters, Jimmy Buffett, Bo Diddley, Bobby Keys, Slash, Ivan Neville, and others.
East’s career also includes performances with Christina Christian (American Idol), George Terry (Eric Clapton), Gerald Levert, Alto Reed (Bob Seger), Billy Mann, John Mooney, Albert Castiglia, Patxi Pastor All-Star Band, Nico Wayne Toussaint, Alberto Slezynger, Delmar Brown (Sting), Leroy Romans (Rihanna, P. Diddy, Jimmy Cliff), Fernest Arceneaux, Warren Caesar, and more.
A product of the famed Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, and Philadelphia College of the Performing Arts, East was raised on a hybrid of Philly Soul, Gospel, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Rock and Pop – sometimes sneaking into live music venues to see his idols – all of which helped him to develop his deep backbeat style and signature sound.
“We’re really happy to welcome Dan into the Aquarian family,” stated Chris Brady, Director of Marketing and Artist Relations for Aquarian Drumheads. “He has a great understanding of our products and a wonderful reputation for his sound as an artist.”
Daniel East is proud of his choices for sound quality and performs exclusively with these fine brands:
