When Randy was just three years old, a car accident landed him in the hospital for months with trauma to his head, hands and legs. Doctors said Randy would always have difficulty with his small-motor (hands and legs) coordination.

Randy dreamed of the day when he could play ball, and run like the other kids. His mother, determined to help, got him a set of drums. (She was so very smart) Against all odds, Randy continued to practice his drums. Determined, Randy eventually overcame all his adversities even to the point of sounding like his jazz drumming idol Gene Krupa.

The rest… (so they say)…is history…Randy has been entertaining audiences everywhere with his celebrity showmanship, and remarkable jazz drumming talents. Randy has received countless standing ovations at both Disneyland and Disney World Florida, and at other special events including…The Chicago Winds Jazz Orchestra in Chicago, Playboy Jazz Festivals and PBS Shows in Hollywood California.

Tonight Randy will perform selections from his “Tribute To Gene Krupa” show with the Down Beat Express Big Band, directed by Pat Emmett

Also featured this evening is Altadena’s own, MCA recording artist, Jennifer Gates. She appears regularly with her trio in Pasadena supper clubs. Jennifer and the Down Beat Express can be heard on their recent CD, “The Silver Project”, available for purchase at tonight’s performance.

Gina Harlan will sing the Krupa hit Drummer Man.
