Steve Wattay / Bio

Steve was born in Annapolis, MD but grew up on the outskirts of Winchester, VA. As a youngster he sang in the school chorus and played trombone for the band. With the help of his grandmother, who was an avid pianist, he even managed to earn a few solos at those performances. This helped him learn music and really start to grasp the concept of musicality. Steve had his first experience with the trap kit at a very early age. His uncle would let him hammer out beats on his vintage Ludwig Vistalites. Eventually his generous uncle gave the drums to him and Steve began to take music and drumming more seriously. He has studied with various masters including Alfonso Young, Grant Menefee, and Matt Wilson. Steve enjoys exploring all genres of music and continues to lay down the groove wherever he is needed. Steve has also played with the following acts: Stezakma, Too Many Chiefs, Treehouse, Earthbound Shakedown, The Bloody 9's, The Lady Dies, Luke Johnson, The Sunday Jam Group and Free Wheelin'.
