At only 24-years-old Mike Bennett is emerging as one of the nations top drummers and percussionists. His tremendous musicality and on-stage charisma have led Drum! Magazine to call him, “a full-fledged chameleon, showing restraint or blasting chops when called for, with a clean sound, metronomic feel, and a distinctly melodic soling style.” Modern Drummer Magazine agrees and says that he is, “on the fast track…a versatile drummer who is building a reputation as one of L.A.’s finest.” .. .. In his short career Bennett crosses many contemporary and world genres and has performed on both drum kit or percussion with artists such as The Estrada Brothers, Johnny Blas, Joe Jewell, Benise, David Garfield, Sandro Albert, Jonah Matranga, Max Bennett and many others! He has also appeared on television shows and stations such as The Tonight Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, TeeNick, Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, MTV, VH1, MuchMusic and more! Bennett can also be heard on the new drum and percussion sample library available from Roland. He is also a highly recognized face in many international drum magazines through his popular articles and advertisements. .. .. Mike is proud to be an artist and clinician for Taye Drums, LP Percussion, Rhythm Tech Percussion, Sabian Cymbals, Evans Drumheads, Regal Tip Drumsticks, Roland Electronics, Gibraltar Hardware, Kotz Cajones and E-Pad Practice Pads. He is currently performing with pop sensation Hilary Duff.
