René Escovedo, Oaktown bred drummer and self taught musician. Started learning basic rudiments in grade school, learning to play popular music. René was fortunate to be raised in a great musical family full of great drummers and percussionist entertainers; as it allowed him to be influenced by some of the greatest music of that time; and experience first hand some of the bands and musicians to come through the Bay Area. For René there was an overwhelming need to play drums; growing up in a landscape of fusion and jazz. René has become well known for his approach based on melodic timbre, basic grooves coupled with emotional and powerful performances. René is a drummer expressing his musical thoughts very effectively, playing aggressive styles of music. Exploring drums as an instrument of space dynamics. René has received multiple drum endorsements; his current project is René Escovedo & The FUSE, a group based on Funky Jazz; Latin Jazz and Progressive Jazz Fusion.
