Bill Meredith

"Bill Meredith is a drumming professional - that means he shows up on time; he's learned his parts, and he nails them live. That puts him in the top 1% of musicians I like to work with. Always willing to adapt, stretch, and be part of a team. After 15 years in the music business, I can still count those people on one hand." - Fran Snyder, independent recording artist, North American Collegiate Association (NACA) touring artist, founder of

Selected Works

Originally scheduled for May with Dickey Betts as a headliner, the Florida Jam was pushed to Oct. 20 because of weather, and finally took place at Sunset Cove Ampitheater in Boca Raton, FL featuring Gov't Mule, Elvin Bishop, and Eric Gales after Betts canceled.
From Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and Bob Dylan to Lauryn Hill, Black Violin and Maxwell, the 2018-2019 season in South Florida pop concerts offers contrasting nostalgia acts and those who primarily rose since the turn of the century.
The 2018-2019 season in South Florida jazz is a microcosm, and perhaps a signal that the genre is at least suffering a regional identity crisis. Veterans like pianist Chick Corea, banjoist Bela Fleck, guitarist John Scofield, vocalist Kurt Elling, and trumpeter Randy Brecker dot the late-season landscape.
