Biography

Tre’ Balfour has toured as a percussionist with Color Me Badd, Michael Bolton and has also performed with other artists in the music industry such as Gladys Knight, Kashif, All-4-One and a host of others. He is currently the drummer/musical director and producer for Jay Lamont (Sweet Success Records) and the drummer for the Urban Jazz group BlakTop which is signed to the same label. Merging the hand percussion concept of the percussionist groove into the groove of the drumset is what makes Tre’s sound unique.
