Drum Rave is a combination of sampling, sequencing, looping, singing, and of course drumming. Everything is performed live and in real time by ONE person. Jaime Winchell has been drumming since he was a young boy. Although drumming was always his passion, he had always been curious about trying other instruments like keys, guitar and even saxophone. Lacking the time or patience to learn all those instruments, he took on the world of sampling. Jaime records individual notes and sounds via midi and assigns them to one of the 20 pads placed around his drum kit. With this, he can play any instrument along with a drum beat at the same time. This process doesn't happen overnight. Every song comes with a completely different set of samples located in different places on the kit. Using this concept has opened the door for him to perform the types of music he could never do with a full band. So many groups record crazy electronic sounds into their music but then have no way to physically play it back live. So when you come to see Drum Rave perform, you will hear songs that you have never seen played live before.

I just want to send a huge thank you to Drum Rave and his crew for playing at our wedding on June 10th! We 100% had the time of our lives with you as our entertainment for the night! Our guests are still raving about what a great show you provided!!! Not only was Drum Rave amazing as a performer, but he provided excellent MC service for our wedding. In addition, our cocktail hour and dinner hour music was perfect for a wedding. I would recommend Drum Rave in a heartbeat for any wedding! Jamie’s level of professionalism and personality shined thru the whole night. My only regret was that I booked our bus to pick up at 11:30 pm which was way too early! My husband and I and our guests wanted to continue to dance and party with Drum Rave way past the 11:30 pickup. Thank you Drum Rave and your crew for making our wedding the best night we ever could have asked for!
