TOM LUND began drumming as a kid in the Washington, D.C. area, gigging in bars at the tender underage of 12. Since moving to Portland, Oregon, in 1973, he has become an established stage/studio drummer and back-up vocalist, recording and performing with numerous local bands and artists. His playing encompasses a myriad of musical genres from rock, country, folk, gospel, jazz and funk to Latin and Afro-Cuban, and from show tunes and standards to projects of purely improvisational form. In 2006, Tom introduced percussion into his set-up; he now often plays over 30 different percussion instruments in a single performance, combining instinctual timing with innovative style. Audience members love the spectacle he provides visually as well as musically, describing his playing as ‘fascinating’, ‘entertaining’ and as a ‘memorable experience for the eyes and ears’.
