Andrew Rella - Drums / Background Vocals

I have been playing drums for 11 years. I studied first with Howie Mann, from 1990-1997. I then studied with Jim Carroll while going to Suffolk Community College. In 1994, while at Farmingdale High School, I received a scholarship to Manhattan School of Music Preparatory Division. I performed in Lincoln Center in 1994 with the Prep. Division Orchestra.

After graduating from Farmingdale High School, I moved to Port Jefferson Station and began taking courses at Suffolk Community College. It was at Suffolk where I met Pat Cognitore and Brian Fort while performing in the Jazz Band.

Pat gave me a tape with Two Step, Satellite, What Would You Say?, So Much To Say, and Dancing Nancies. He asked me if I wanted to play in a Dave Matthews Band Tribute. I was, am, and always will be blown away by the style and finesse of Mr. Beauford....so I said yeah. I did my best to learn the tunes and began rehearsing with Brian Hall, Pat and Brian Fort. All the pieces seemed to just fall into place. Our first show was at Laser Kingdom for "free laser-tag all night". We have come a long way in three years.
