EC3 is a Drummer, Percussionist, Clinician, Educator, Producer and Arranger. EC was
the youngest Musician to graduate from The Naval School of Music.
After graduating he moved to Las Vegas and began working shows and breaking his
way in to the Jazz scene. There he joined Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett’s Jazz
Pianist, Vincent Falcone. Shortly thereafter, EC became the “first call’ Drummer on the
Vegas Scene. EC was then hired by Songstress Loretta Holloway and became her
Musical Director, performing in Vegas and all over the world.
EC also performed with the Las Vegas Symphony Orchestra, the Caesars Palace
Orchestra, Harrah, Reno and Tahoe Orchestras. EC went on to develop the rare quality
of “conducting from behind the drums while performing with Ms. Holloway, opening for
Bill Cosby, Jay Leno, Whoopi Goldberg and a host of other greats! EC also worked
Vegas with jazz legends Kenny Burrell, Lorenzo Almedia, Joe Williams, Azar Lawrence,
and many more. EC then got the call of a life time—to perform with Jazz Giant, Bassist,
Mr. Al McKibbon (for the Giants of Jazz; Dizzy Gillespie, Nancy Wilson, Charlie Parker,
and Thelonious Monk). This relationship would grow into one of the best musical
experiences EC could ever ask for.
EC auditioned and got the part for the musical "The Bourbon Street Review". As his
relationship grew with Al, they became like father and son as McKibbon took EC under
his wing. The show ran for a few years and Al McKibbon asked EC to come to L.A. and
work with his band. Of course EC packed up and moved to Los Angeles and began
working with the Al McKibbon quartet. He became a regular at The Twin Palms (owned
by Actor Kevin Costner). Shortly after that EC joined jazz great Mr. Billy Higgins and
began studying with Billy and learning from one of the masters on drums.
EC has recorded four phenomenal CDs as a band leader. The titles are: “Time &
Rhyme”, “My Rhythmic Point of View”, “Her Eyes at Sunset” "My Romance with
Rhythms” and “It's All About the Rhythm". EC is also in demand to teach master classes
and clinics as well as students seeking private instruction.
