BIO

Zak has been performing for 30+ years across 50 countries. He began as an orchestral percussionist who gradually evolved into both a marching specialist and an accomplished drum set artist. After 12 consecutive years of drum corps (DCA & DCI), he aged out with the Concord Blue Devils and began performing with the Broadway hit production, Blast!. With two decades of theme-park entertainment experience for Disney (Japan), Universal Studios, and Sea World, Zak has been an integral component in dozens of productions as a performer and composer. As a clinician and educator, his sought-after master classes, sponsored by the Yamaha Corporation, have impacted drumming communities throughout the world.

After residing in Tokyo for over a decade, Zak is currently based out of the Dallas area. He holds the drum chair for Blast!, as well as the top-40 band Time Machine, playing 300+ shows per year.
