A drummer since the age of 10, Nick Zacarelli has made a name for himself in the local music scene throughout Southern Connecticut. A constant student of the art of drumming, Nick's passion for music has shown in the wide range of projects he has been involved in. Whether he is killing the drums on stage at a rock, funk or metal gig or playing a live jazz set at a small club, Nick Zacarelli thrives to be entertaining, authentic and honest in his playing. During stints with bands, All In Blind and Off The Bridge, and currently metal band, As Everything Ends, Nick shared the stage with a long list of international touring acts. This list included, The Misfits, Circa Survive, The Receiving End of Sirens, Hot Rod Circuit, Apocalytica among many others. In 2006, Nick Zacarelli studied with his long time drumming idol and one of the worlds best drummers, Dave Weckl.
Currently, Nick is working with, As Everything Ends, a fresh new metal band out of New Haven, CT. Nick is gaining much respect in the local metal scene by adding his own flavor and groove to metal music. "I didn't want to come into this metal band throwing double bass all over the music. I think it tends to be over used...I definitely wanted to bring my groove and the hard rock side of my drumming to the metal scene," says Nick.
Nick is a working session drummer in the tri-state area (CT, NY and MA) available for studio sessions, gigs or private drum instruction.
