About
My name is Butch Cavouto. I live in Westhampton Beach, New York. My style of drumming is Pop, Rock, Blues and Country, which all consist of steady pocket drumming. I also have extensive experience in drum soloing. In my early years of drumming I played in Drum Corps. This is where I got my introduction to rudiments and have never stopped practicing them on a daily basis.

My influences are as follows:Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Les Falconer and Jeff Porcaro. My background consists of extensive drum lessons from great teachers such as Ralph Parkhill, Pete Heywood, and Bobby Rondinelli.

I am presently performing in 3 musical groups. They are First, The Rhythm and Blues Express Band, which is a Chicago, Mississippi Blues band. Second, The Royals which is a R&B and a rock band. Finally Circle Earth a hard rock group out of upstate New York, we currently have a CD on iTunes.

I am doing a lot of recording with all my bands and independent producers throughout Long Island and New York City. I have toured with many bands and solo artists through the years. I do drum clinics throughout New York and Long Island. I still teach drums to many students in my hometown. Here are some Musicians that I recorded and toured with: Tiny Tim, Mary Wells, The Happinings, The Chiffons, The Shirelles, The Sounds of Modification and Circle Earth.
