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

Boynton Beach, FL-based singer/songwriter Jerry Leeman presented a stellar reenactment of Martin Scorsese's documentary film on The Band, 'The Last Waltz,' on Nov. 21 at the Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, FL.
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.
