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 concertsinyourhome.com.

Selected Works

Story
With another lineup of Yes led by longtime members Steve Howe (guitar/vocals) and Alan White (drums), the one helmed by original vocalist Jon Anderson and longtime members Rick Wakeman (keyboards) and Trevor Rabin (guitar/vocals) now seeks supremacy with newer members Lee Pomeroy (bass/vocals) and Lou Molino III (drums/vocals).
Without as many classic rock stars as usual, and with newer, younger acts like Kings of Leon, Bruno Mars, and The Killers, the 2017-2018 season in South Florida pop music feels like a long-expected changing of the guard.
From the expected suspects (the Marsalis brothers, trumpeter Chris Botti) to rising stars (Gregory Porter, Jon Batiste) and female instrumentalists (Jane Bunnett, Anat Cohen), the 2017-2018 season in South Florida jazz is as a strong as usual and higher in unpredictability.
