Rusty Aceves is a freelance drummer, percussionist and writer working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I began playing drums at 11, thanks to the presence of my brother's unused drumset in the house and access to my father's and siblings' record collections, and it was a straight shot from there through junior high and high school bands to a Music Major in college.
Since then, I've been performing steadily as a jazz musician, rock musician, symphonic percussionist and theater musician throughout the San Francisco area and beyond. I am also an active Thereminist.
