About Chuck Prada
Chuck Prada, a native of San Diego, CA… began his passion for percussion through his father at a very tender age. His deep enthusiasm for music led him to venture out on his own. He found himself studying extensivley under several master drummers with distinct ethic styles and methods like Cuban and Brazilian. Techniques like these, have geared him to specialize in Congas, Timbales, Bongo and assorted Afro-Cuban hand percussion.
Just in the last three years alone, his talent and diversity has enabled him to tour and record with contemporary artists like Dr. Dre, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake, Sergio Mendes & Nelly Furtado, as well as such heavy weights like Fred Wesley (The JBs), Phil Upchurch (Curtis Mayfield), Harvey Mason (Herbie Hancock) & Red Holloway (Jack McDoff). Independent Percussionist & Producer
San Diego has been Chuck’s performing stomping grounds for many years; it’s no surprise that the city of Los Angeles had no choice but to take notice of his percussion style. He currently works in both of these cities and other performing on tours, studio work and gigs with some of today’s best musicians.sz
There is no denying that Chuck Prada’s infectious groove will touch anyone and everyone, even the hard of hearing. It’s no wonder that articles have been written about his fiery percussion style in publications like Roland (Beat Pharmacie, which include members of Black Eyed Peas & Macy Gray), Jazz Times (organ virtuoso Robert Walters from Greyboy All-Stars) & Modern Drummer (Robert Walter’s Money Shot Album- featuring Stanton Moore of Galactic).It is evident that his ambition, high driven energy and love for playing music will move you.
