TOMMY IGOE Tommy Igoe is one of the world’s most prominent drummers and bandleaders. He began drumming at the age of two and has gone on to craft a unique and diverse career, traveling the world with Art Garfunkel, Blood Sweat and Tears, Dave Grusin, Stanley Jordan and the New York Voices amongst many others. For the last six years, his Birdland Big Band has been the most popular weekly music event in New York City, maintaining its Friday residency at the iconic Birdland Jazz

Club. In 1997, he created the drumset book for The Lion King on Broadway, also serving as principal drummer and conductor. Igoe is dedicated to worldclass music education, writing some of the world’s best-selling books and DVDs and is a globally in-demand clinician. He currently lives in San Francisco where his new band, The Tommy Igoe Big Band, enjoys a weekly residency at the Rrazz Room. Visit TommyIgoe.com for live video, audio and more.

THE BIRDLAND BIG BAND The Birdland Big Band was created by Tommy Igoe in 2006 and has become the most popular weekly musical residency in New York City. The BBB is a worldclass music event and its personnel is comprised of the country’s finest topshelf talent, including musicians from every jazz/pop tour and Broadway show imaginable. The band’s newest recording, Eleven, has been glowingly received with numerous 5-star reviews and is currently in the Grammy conversation

for three separate awards. The band is dedicated to performing unique music from all over the world with jaw-dropping musicianship. As Igoe boldly states, “The world doesn’t need another good big band, it needs something unforgettable, spectacular—something to bring a brandnew audience to this incredible art form.” In 2012 and 2013, the BBB will be touring the USA taking the Birdland experience to performing arts centers across the country.
