High Energy Solo Drummer for a Drumming Show
Sugarfoot was Michael Jackson’s live touring drummer over the course of 30 years even up to the rehearsals he did for Michael’s “This Is It” tour before his untimely death. Sugarfoot’s performance consists of about 15-20 of the hit songs he performed live with Michael Jackson over the span of three decades on a massive 3-5 bass drum drum kit and will command the stage while Michael Jackson’s presence will be felt through stunning video visuals, lighting and fog machine

I had the distinct pleasure of playing with Sugarfoot on Madonna’s Blonde Ambition tour and he is one of the best show drummers I’ve ever played with. During the 10 weeks of rehearsals and 4-month tour I only heard him make 1 slight mistake and if I remember correctly it was because of a technical malfunction. He is a consummate professional. He plays the parts with feeling and excitement, remembers arrangements like his mind is a steel trap, treats his colleagues with kindness and respect and is as funky as he wants to be. Playing with him along with the late great David Williams, Luis Conte and Kai Winding were one of the best musical experiences of my career and I’ve been blessed with a few. As you can surmise, I’ve got nothing but love and respect for “Foot.” I’d go into musical battle with him anywhere, anytime!Darryl Jones (bassist for The Rolling Stones)
Nobody plays with as much soul and style as Sugarfoot. He is like a proudMadonna
animal on stage ready to pounce!
