Thank you for your compliments.
I have never played in church. I wish my Catholic church had a little hipper music! lol...However, if you read my bio on my drummerworld page, you'll see that my "roots" are diverse, having grown up on The Beatles, and then JB, Parliament and others. I think my stint with Patti LaBelle really brought that out of me even more. I played with some excellent players in that band, an I was exposed to alot of cool feels. I try to roll all my influences together and hope it comes out like me... R&B and Funk/Fusion are the types of things I do mostly.
Although, on my website, www.patpetrillo.com
, you'll also hear some Pop Rock anf Jazz clips as well!
All the best
