„Paiste cymbals have both the sound and feel that always makes them very enjoyable to play. I've tried just about every Paiste line there is and whether I'm playing a live concert in front of a crowd of thousands or in the studio recording, Paiste projects all that I look for in a precision instrument.“

Biography

An independent South Florida recording and performing drum artist experienced in an array of different playing styles from Rock to Jazz to Brazilian Samba, with a combined 25 years of professional on-stage experience, global touring and studio recording. 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 and 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’s' educational endeavors have led him to self-produce his own full-length 3-hour Instructional DVD entitled “Practical Drumming with Brian Lutz. Within months of the initial release of “Practical Drumming” this highly-acclaimed DVD was featured in MODERN DRUMMER & DRUMHEAD magazines. Brian was drafted into Odyssey Road in October of 2009 adding a missing element that only Steve Smith, former member of Journey, could bring himself.
