Michael Romeo, a native Philadelphian, has been playing drums and percussion for over 30 years. He honed his skills as an improvisational drummer & percussionist by playing it his way-anywhere and everywhere he would go over the last 15 years. Armed with a single djembe slung around his back, he has gone from crashing from crashing festivals and nightclubs to becoming the headlining act. Over the years he has played extensively in L.A., NYC, Philly, the Jersey Shore and other east coast shore points, Miami and Europe. Unlike most drummers who play only one particular style, he holds no allegiance to any particular genre of music and has dismissed the confines of traditional teachings in exchange for a daring, all-out freestyle technique that lives in the moment.
He has shared the sound system with top DJ’s like DJ AM, Marcus Wyatt, Pete Tong, Tiesto, and many, other top flight DJ’s, including a 3 year residency at the world famous Borgata Nightclub in Atlantic City, NJ. His vivacious energy coupled with his ability to create an organic connection between the DJ and the dance floor energizes crowds and can elevate any performance.
