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. During his 12 years of drum corps (DCA & DCI), he won titles with the Heatwave of Orlando and aged out with the Concord Blue Devils. Shortly after, he joined the Broadway hit production, Blast!.
During his two decades of theme-park entertainment experience for Disney (Japan), Universal Studios, and Sea World, he was an integral component in dozens of productions as a performer, session musician, MC, 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. He is the author and publisher of several e-books for drum set as well as the owner and operator behind international music production collective, Combustible Audio.
