NICK SCHEUBLE DRUMMER
Nick Scheuble has established a reputation as both a first-rate Jazz drummer and Latin percussionist and offers an impressive list of artists he has performed and/or recorded within each genre. Additionally, his expertise in early New Orleans jazz has enabled him to work with some of the most respected exponents of this style as well.
Citing Max Roach, Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, and Tony Williams as major influences on his drumming, he also holds a degree in piano and is equally influenced by artists such as Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis and Billie Holiday. As such, his drumming is both compositional and melodic and comes from a strong rhythmic and conceptual foundation in be-bop and post-bop.
Born in the Bronx, New York, Nick Scheuble moved to New Jersey shortly before his sixth birthday. By the age of thirteen, he began to take a serious interest in music. Subsequent studies followed in drums and piano under Carl Wolf and Dr. John Gorman, respectively. He enrolled in the prestigious Jazz Studies and Performance program at the William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey studying under the tutelage of renowned drummer/educator, John Riley.
Upon graduation in 1991, Nick began a distinguished career as both a sideman and a bandleader. He has performed and/or recorded with, among others, Wynton Marsalis, Ray Barretto, Dave Valentin, Chico Mendoza, David Berger, Peter Bernstein, Jim Rotondi, Bill Crow, Vince Giordano, Mike LeDonne, Hilton Ruiz, Jeanie Bryson, Tim Ries, Jimmy Bosch, Wycliffe Gordon, Don Braden and Eric Alexander. He has been recorded by Rudy van Gelder and performed at The Stanley Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center, Birdland, The Village Gate, The West End Gate, Kitano, Café de Muze (Belgium), Aaron Davis Hall, Walter Reade Theatre, John Harms Center, Mechanics Hall, and other noted venues throughout America and Europe.
As a percussionist, he has toured much of the United States with The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra – a premiere American orchestra formed at The Juilliard School that has served as Ambassador of Good Will for the United States Government.
As a leader, Nick leads several very successful bands that have earned considerable praise from several noted Jazz critics including George Kanzler and David Orthmann. He has been the subject for feature articles in such prestigious publications as the New York Times and has received critical acclaim for his debut CD as a leader, “In the Pocket,” which features his latest Quintet performing many of his compositions.
Between 2000 and 2006, Nick performed extensively in Europe and alternated residence between the Netherlands and The U.S. He currently resides in Rockaway, New Jersey with his wife and their three children.
