showed up on time, every time, and he showed up PREPARED!!
Learned the songs front-to-back... very impressive!
I'd feel comfortable just having him show up to a gig!
He's THAT good. Professional, fun, flexible and easy-going"

worked with Stefano for the last year and at every event
that we've played, his drumming has been impeccable!
He is creative, offering suggestions, but listens to
and performs exactly what's been decided on. His creativity
is always looming, and his ability to improvise on a
moments notice has been a God send! He's always been
punctual to every rehearsal and show, and his attention
to detail is over the top. He has shown me and my band
that he is a man of integrity, responsibilty and committment,
and here in Hollywood that is such a welcome to see"!

"Stefano is great to work with. His attitude is
always positive and upbeat. He comes prepared, always
having listened to (and learned) any song youve
sent him in advance. Hes professional, punctual,
flexible and attentive. And best of all, his drumming
is solid, tasteful, and right in time. All things considered,
Stefano is one of the best musicians Ive happened
upon in my entire career".
- Tom Caufield (caufieldmusic.com)
"Stefano is dependable, reliable, and extremely
talented in creating drum landscapes and energy from
music. His dynamics and musicianship stand out above
the rest! I highly recommend Stefano as a drummer and
