The Uncle Devin Show is a live, interactive musical experience for children by renowned drummer Devin Walker. The show cultivates the minds of children through percussion instruments and is a dynamic cross between Fat Albert and Schoolhouse Rock. Uncle Devin is both a drummer and percussionist - the original “Drumcussionist.” His drum set consists of a combination of real drums and percussion instruments along with the latest in electronic drums. This hybrid drum set allows him to play his drum grooves with additional color provided by cowbells, triangles, shakers, congas and timbales - the learning tools for his message.
Devin Walker is a former volunteer, mentor and co-coordinator of a mentorship program at two elementary schools in Prince George’s County, MD, a former church youth Director in Washington, DC, and a former youth Counselor for an at-risk youth program with a non-profit organization geared toward the academic and social development of children. He has been performing as a drummer and percussionist for over 25 years, playing with local and international groups such as Fertile Ground, Soul-In-Motion Players, Bottomland, the UMBC Jazz Ensemble and Godisheus International Funk Band. He is a member and co-founder of the Washington, DC-based ElectroKoustic Band.
