MUSICIAN Born:

Lucas Gillan

Growing up in Tucson, AZ with an evangelical pastor father and amateur drummer mother, Lucas Gillan latched on to music at an early age. His formative years were spent performing in settings as varied as possible in a city the size of Tucson. Getting his start by drumming in church, Gillan eventually became deeply involved in the city’s underground rock scene, playing both drums and guitar in punk, hardcore and indie rock groups for audiences of his peers. All the while, he remained devoted to the craft of jazz drumming, studying privately with local authority Fred Hayes, playing in city- wide youth jazz ensembles, frequenting the city’s weekly jam sessions, and eventually gigging professionally around town. He left Arizona to further his jazz studies at Northern Illinois University, whose recent alumni include notable Chicago jazz innovators Dave Miller, Greg Ward and Willerm Delisfort

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
