ABOUT THE ARTIST
Drew Tucker is a musician, educator, and social entrepreneur—a unique combination of talents that place him at the intersection of the arts and activism.
Artistically, he’s at the forefront of the movement to reinvent the vibraphone—a dynamic instrument that he melds with soul, funk, jazz and hip-hop influences. He has shared the stage with Shaun Martin, Mani Hoffman, Jeff Coffin, Chris Nix, Tom Hurst, Nebjsa Zikovic, Mark Ford to name a few and his jazz influenced twists on modern-day standards from Michael Jackson, to Prince and The Police, have earned him key endorsements from Mike Balter, Musser, Beetle Percussion, Lot Riot and Sabian Cymbals—and the applause of sold-out audiences nationwide.
The passion he brings to the stage is also present in his classroom. Drew’s one of the most sought after educators in mallet education, which led to him being a top front ensemble coach and one of the most coveted speakers in his field.
As a community activist, he’s driven to revitalize underserved areas through the creation of arts centers in underserved neighborhoods and was the key factor in the development of Arts Garage in Delray Beach, the Bailey & Ali Cultural Arts Center and Old School Square. Through his leadership and musicianship, he strives to not only raise spirits, but set an example of excellence and open opportunities for students, families and communities to realize their potential.
Whether performing alongside Grammy winners as a world-class vibraphonist, coaching eager high school students through national music competitions, or leading and directing the growth of local arts institutions, Drew’s passion for improving people’s lives through artistic endeavor is unwavering.
Drew is currently touring solo and with his band The New Standard, is a front ensemble consultant and technician for Stryke World and Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps and the percussion director at Boca Raton High School.
