Artistically, Drew Tucker is at the forefront of the movement to reinvent the vibraphone—a dynamic instrument that he melds with soul, funk, jazz and hip-hop influences. He has shared the stage with Shaun Martin, Mani Hoffman, Jeff Coffin, Chris Nix, Tom Hurst, Nebjsa Zikovic, Mark Ford to name a few and his jazz influenced twists on modern-day standards from Michael Jackson, to Prince and The Police, have earned him key endorsements from Mike Balter, Musser, Beetle Percussion, Lot Riot and Sabian Cymbals—and the applause of sold-out audiences nationwide.
The passion he brings to the stage is also present in his classroom. Drew’s one of the most sought after educators in mallet education, which he led to him being a top front ensemble coach and one of the most coveted speakers in his field.
Whether performing alongside Grammy winners as a world-class vibraphonist, coaching eager high school students through national music competitions, or leading and directing the growth of local arts institutions, Drew’s passion for improving people’s lives through artistic endeavor is unwavering.
