Ricky Martin’s Tony Escapa
Hey, everyone, here’s my first Modern Drummer blog! For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve performed countless tours with all sorts of artists in every genre: Ricky Martin, Al Di Meola, Paoli Mejias, Simon Shaheen, Oz Noy, David Sanchez, Miguel Zenón, Claudia Acuña, and more. I’m from PR and studied at Berklee School Of Music in Boston. Since I moved to New York in 2003, my career has been nothing but awesome. Here are a few things happening that I wanted to share with you all.
Soon I’ll be recording a live CD/DVD with one of Latin America’s most important singer-songwriters of all time, Franco De Vita; it will be released in 2011. I’ll be back touring with Latin pop superstar Ricky Martin early next year. I’ll keep you posted for more to come.
Also, please visit Vater.com, Zildjian.com, LPMusic.com, Remo.com, and YamahaDrums.com—these are the companies that make my life better as a drummer on the road. Here’s a picture of me with the kit I’ve been touring with for the past two years, a Yamaha Oak Custom in the midnight sparkle finish. It sounds awesome! To find solos and clips of me playing, go to YouTube and search for my name. Thanks, y’all—see you soon!
