No one – no one – plays quite like Drummer/percussionist Alphonso M. Young, Jr. His versatile and imaginative style of performance has not only charmed audiences around the world, but has led such noted artists as Vanessa Rubin, Randy Brecker, Bob Berg, George Colligan, Buck Hill, Ira Sullivan, Othello Molineaux, Rebecca Parris and Jon Secada to acquire his talent. He was also the percussionist for the European tour of the Broadway show “Sophisticated Ladies”.
A music instructor with Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia and on the faculty of Shenandoah University he and his brother Tim lead the Young Brothers Trio and released their own CD. His energetic swing style can only be described as breathtaking. If Bruce Lee played percussion, he would want to play like Alphonso Young.
