Sugarfoot Solo Drummer – The Michal Jackson Experience

Solo Drummer in London

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

“Nobody plays with as much soul and style as Sugarfoot. He is like a proud
animal on stage ready to pounce!” – Madonna

“This performance of Jackson’s hit “Smooth Criminal” sees Sugarfoot
digging tight into the groove and showing off his insane pocket” [“The 6
Best Drum Videos of 2018”] – Music Radar

“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)
