He has a subtle sense of knowing where a track a DJ is playing is about to go, gives you the sense that his drums are a part of that track...until you turn around and see him behind you.
He performs regularly at clubs in New York City, Philly, and Atlantic City, Miami, Dewey Beach and in studio sessions with producers and remixers. He also works extensively at Weddings, Bar Mitzahs and other corporate events. He is also a seamless addition to live acts; large and small. His weapons of choice consist of a variety of percussion instruments from Djembes, Bongos, Congas, timbales, roto-toms, cowbells, blocks and cymbals, etc. and is complimented by a Roland Handsonic electronic drum with a full compliment of sound for any genre of sounds when recording and performing live. Uplights and LED's and wireless mics are used to complete the look and sound of this tireless performer.
Michael Romeo, a native Philadelphian, has been playing drums and percussion for over 30 years. He honed his skills as an improvisational drummer & percussionist by playing it his way-anywhere and everywhere he would go over the last 15 years. Armed with a single djembe slung around his back, he has gone from crashing from crashing festivals and nightclubs to becoming the headlining act. Over the years he has played extensively in L.A., NYC, Philly, the Jersey Shore and other east coast shore points, Miami and Europe. Unlike most drummers who play only one particular style, he holds no allegiance to any particular genre of music and has dismissed the confines of traditional teachings in exchange for a daring, all-out freestyle technique that lives in the moment.
He has shared the sound system with top DJ’s like DJ AM, Marcus Wyatt, Pete Tong, Tiesto, and many, other top flight DJ’s, including a 3 year residency at the world famous Borgata Nightclub in Atlantic City, NJ. His vivacious energy coupled with his ability to create an organic connection between the DJ and the dance floor energizes crowds and can elevate any performance.
