Brian Czach

Nashville session drummer Brian Czach (pronounced "Zack") is currently playing sessions and live shows around Music City. Czach has devoted his life to being as creative and versatile anyone with a pair of sticks could hope to be. Born in Schenectady NY, he has experience playing in every imaginable musical setting, from live shows, film & TV scores, artist sessions, tours, dance bands, and live theater, Brian’s musical experience is vastly extensive. With a BA in percussion performance from Ithaca College (’98), Brian moved to New York City in 2001, where he toured internationally and played nearly every major jazz club in the USA (including Birdland & Blue Note) with Tony DeSare and recorded 3 records (Telarc Records). At this time he was also playing shows around the world as a featured soloist with Domenick Allen. Brian also recorded and appeared with Rebecca Pronsky, The West Side Band (Springsteen tribute), and many off-Broadway and cabaret style shows in clubs and small theaters in New York City. ​ In late 2007, Brian moved to Las Vegas and quickly became a well known "A" list drummer for shows and singers of all kind. Drumming for Jimmy Castor & The Bunch, Clint Holmes, Martin Nievera, Susan Anton, Travis Cloer, among others, led Brian to writing and arranging a show for Rick Faugno (Jersey Boys) in 2011. Opening at the Las Vegas Hilton, "Body and Soul" ran for 8 months before moving to the famed Palms Casino for another 3 months which Brian MD'ed and drummed. In late 2012 Brian played the "Winter in Venice" production show of Mannheim Steamroller at the Palazzo where he played everything from a hybrid drum kit to finger cymbals to a toy piano. For the duration of 2013, he drummed and was a show stopping feature for 5 nights/week in "Pin Up" with Playboy Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair at the Stratosphere, a sexy rockabilly musical show, all while subbing in many other shows on the Vegas Strip, including Jersey Boys, The Rat Pack is Back, Coasters/Platters/Marvelettes, and Zowie Bowie. In early 2014 he toured with the Australian Bee Gees Show, performing 3 extensive tours in Europe and one 10 week tour of N. America. In 2015, Brian joined up with Nashville based show "You've Got A Friend" which tours around the country performing orchestral arrangements w/ rhythm section of all the classic hits of James Taylor and Carole King.
