Tommy Igoe
For more than 25 years, Tommy Igoe, has been blazing a trail in the music industry as a sideman, band leader, and educator. His Birdland Big Band is the hottest band in the world's biggest music market, and Tommy leads the band's sold out shows with the same passion and energy that has made him one of the world's top drummers.

Tommy lives and works in New York, but has recorded and toured internationally with artists such as: Stanley Jordan, Art Garfunkel, Lauryn Hill, Dave Grusin, New York Voices, Patti Austin, Mark Mancina, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and David Wilcox. Recently, he wrote the drum book for Disney's legendary Broadway musical, The Lion King, integrating the modern day drum set into the heavily-percussive African score.

Tommy's instructional videos are top-sellers and have gained worldwide acclaim. His latest, Groove Essentials 2.0 (Hudson Music), is a must-have resource for drummers of all ages and playing levels. This product, plus the original Groove Essentials title, feature DVD and play-along versions.

Tommy's debut CD, “New Ground," received numerous 4-star reviews from international music magazines. Modern Drummer magazine called it "breathtaking" and "inventive and disarmingly strong."

More recently, Tommy and the "BBB" have released the CD "Live From New York" CD. This incredible 9-song disc catches the band tearing up a myriad of jazz, funk, and Latin tunes.
