BRIAN RUTHER

// drums

 

My interest in music began at an early age while watching my brother Eddie play the drums. In elementary and middle school I played the clarinet, trumpet, guitar and sang in the chorus. It wasn’t until my middle school music teacher, Mr. William Elias, took all of those instruments away and put drum sticks in my hands that I truly began to love music. He put me in the jazz band and I have been playing ever since.

DAVE DURRELL

David was born and raised in Greenwich and attended the Greenwich Public Schools.
