George Fludas


George Fludas was born in Chicago on October 10, 1966. His interest in drumming began when he was very young due to the influence of his father, who played drums and was an avid jazz fan. His father taught him the basics and frequently took George to see the great jazz drummers, such as Art Blakey, Max Roach and Buddy Rich. He majored in music at Lane Tech High School and attended Roosevelt University in 1985-86, majoring in percussion. He left school in 1987 to learn his craft first hand by playing in Chicago clubs with local greats like Von Freeman, Jodie Christian and Lin Halliday, as well as in groups with the area's top young musicians of the day, including Ron Blake, Jesse Davis, David Hazeltine, Bobby Broom, and Eric Alexander. Over the past 20 years he has performed at concert halls, festivals, and clubs throughout North America, Europe and Asia with numerous jazz greats, including Kenny Burrell, Betty Carter, Junior Cook, Lou Donaldson, Tommy Flanagan, Benny Golson, Benny Green, Eric Reed, Johnny Griffin, Roy Hargrove, Barry Harris, Hank Jones, Buddy Montgomery, David "Fathead" Newman, Nicholas Payton, Marlena Shaw, Dr
