Zach Danziger

Zach Danzinger is on the cutting edge of today's music and is one of the hottest players leading a new movement that has broad implications for modern drum set playing. Zak has co-led projects Bluth and Boomish, who pioneer a futuristic mix of electronic music and astonishing musicianship that retains its human touch. Immersing himself in jungle, drum 'n' bass, and other contemporary styles, Zach teamed up with Zildjian's Sound Lab team to develop the A Zildjian Breakbeat Ride and EFX, some special cymbals specifically designed for electronic music styles.

Emerging from the heart of New York's experimental music scene, Zach has recorded in a wide variety of musical genres with such highly acclaimed musicians as Michel Camilo, Chuck Loeb, Randy Brecker, Leni Stern, Bob Mintzer, David Holmes, Jim Beard, Bill Evans, and Dave Fiuczynski. In addition, Zach has co-written the music to a four-hour special on Nickelodeon entitled Nickellennium.

Boomish, Zach Danziger and Tim Lefebvre's contemporary music group, delivers much-needed freshness and originality to the growing drum 'n' bass scene. Zach's programming and uncanny ability to recreate and expand sounds in a live setting really brings Boomish into a whole other realm of contemporary music. Their debut album features both programmed and live tracks.

Zach has also achieved success scoring music for a number of major motion pictures including Oceans 11 and Oceans 12. It is clear that Zach Danziger will continue to challenge traditional music making methods in the interest of advancing music. Zach is not only a cutting edge player but also a true musical innovator.
