Biography

Dave DiCenso is a drummer known for his big sound, deep pocket and soulful style - and some blazing chops.

He has honed his style by touring and recording with a long and very diverse list of world renowned artists including pop legends Duran Duran, prog-rock icon Steve Morse, contemporary prog-rock master John Petrucci, NYC’s hardcore pioneers Cro-Mags, blues-rock master Johnny A., fusion guru David Fiuczynski and contemporary-jazz virtuoso Hiromi. Along the way, he’s worked with a host of incredible bass players including Anthony Jackson, Stu Hamm, and Dave LaRue. Dave has also been a featured performer at major percussion industry events including the Montreal Drum Festival, the Percussive Arts Society Convention, N.A.M.M., and Music MESA. He is sponsored by and has long-standing relationships with Zildjian Cymbal Co., Vater Percussion, Remo Inc., and Pearl Drums. Dave is also a gifted and exciting clinician as well as an Assistant Professor of Percussion at Berklee College of Music.

Growing up in the Boston area with a drumming father, Dave has been living drums since he was a toddler. After banging on his dad’s drums for a couple of years, Dave began asking him for lessons at the ripe old age of four. It wasn’t until a year later that he actually began studying. He quickly realized that “playing” drums was more fun then studying them. Though he tended to prefer playing football and baseball to practicing drums, Dave kept up his lessons for five years. Despite his father’s large collection of jazz records, during this time period, Dave’s ears and heart migrated to the backbeat music he was hearing on the radio.
