Promark by D’Addario welcomes drummer, educator, author, and clinician Dom Famularo to the company’s family of percussion artists. For more than 40 years, Famularo has toured the globe offering master classes and clinics, and taught in colleges, drum schools, and music camps. He continues to travel intensively while working on several drum educational products as well as his series of motivational books.
Tutored by legendary greats such as Joe Morello, Jim Chapin, Al Miller, Charlie Perry, Colin Bailey, Shelly Manne, Papa Jo Jones, and Ronnie Benedict, Famularo combines the masterful techniques of the past with the parameter-pushing concepts of today’s music for a highly creative and uniquely personal style of drumming.
Famularo has performed with the Buddy Rich Big Band, B.B. King, Lionel Hampton, Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones), T Lavitz (The Dixie Dregs), and the Louie Bellson Big Band.
“We are all excited to have Dom join the Promark family of artists and educators,” says Jim Bailey, D’Addario Educator Relations Manager. “Dom is an inspirational figure to drummers around the world and his 40-year career as an educator will be an invaluable resource for our education support efforts.”
Of his partnership with Promark, Famularo says, “Having been with Evans Drumheads for many years, I have had a front row seat to the D’Addario Promark adventure! When D’Addario puts its DNA into a product, magic happens! The feel of every stick sits in my hands with complete comfort and their support of music education is unmatched!”
