For those who may not have heard of Kaz Rodriguez here is a brief sum up of the mans work to date…
Kaz Rodriguez is a lovely guy and an incredible young drummer. Without doubt his chops are amazing to behold and his blistering performances are fast becoming the stuff of legend. Kaz is also a great composer having released his own albums including the acclaimed Fusion Shed Tracks Vol. 2 and has produced tracks on request for the likes of Aaron Spears, Anika Nilles, Chris Coleman, Gerald Heyward, Tony Royster Jr and many more. Kaz also works as a professional session and touring drummer, having toured with of Sinéad Harnett and Jessie Ware among others.
Outside of this already huge workload Kaz finds time to be a teacher, clinician and all round inspiration to drummers performing drum clinics and masterclass performances worldwide for Roland Drums, Tama Drums and Evans Drum heads.
Just this week Kaz made front cover in the recent issue of UK National drum magazine Rhythm. Great to see acknowledgement for this guys amazing abilities.
