AQqt01_03Sandy Gennaro—probably one of the 5 best drummers that I’ve encountered in the last 10 years. He has all the facility, he has all the appearance to make a big plus.

AQqt01_29Sandy Gennaro is a totally professional musician. We go WAY back to 1978 with Michael Bolton, and he has only gotten more dangerous as a solid drummer who takes his craft to the highest level. Not only is he an amazing person, he makes the drums musical, and from a guitarist, that’s a big compliment!

AQqt01_02Sandy is one of my favorite drummers!  He's always right there with you when jamming, and speaking of jamming, he's the s**t... Some drummers simply, "learn parts" and call it a day...not Mr. G!  Ready to have fun on any twists and turns you can throw at him!
