An independent South-Florida recording and performing drum artist experienced in an array of different playing styles from Rock to Jazz to Brazilian Samba. Brian combines his 25 years of professional on-stage experience, global touring and studio recording expertise with the many versatile bands he plays with – whether the demand requires driving out fast, technical double-bass chops or playing brushes in a jazz small-group.
A graduate from the University of North Florida with a B.A. in Jazz Performance, Brian has mastered venues of all types - from cruise lines, to theme parks (Universal, Busch Gardens, Disney) to entertaining tens of thousands overseas with world-wide tour appearances as a former member of the U.S. Army Field Band; the U.S. Army’s premier touring show band. Brian is constantly performing & touring with his band THE SHOP, playing many high-profile venues such as The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
In addition to his many performances, Brian is also a professional drum instructor both privately and at George’s Music in West Palm Beach and the Atlantic Arts Academy of Jupiter. Brian’s educational endeavors have led him to self-produce his own full-length 3-hour instructional DVD entitled “Practical Drumming with Brian Lutz” (available at www.amazon.com, www.brianlutz.com and at east coast George’s Music stores). The DVD was filmed and recorded in legendary Studio A at Criteria Studios in Miami and took over 50 hours of studio time to produce.
Within months of the initial release of “Practical Drumming”, the DVD has already had spotlight features in MODERN DRUMMER and DRUMHEAD magazines — see more about Brian’s DVD at www.brianlutz.com.
