Brad Hawkes


jazz/latin/blues/bluegrass/folk from Victoria BC

I started drumming in 1964, playing along with songs on a Jute Box during sock hops. In the early 70s, I joined a band led by my older brother. I played the hot spots in and around Prince George. I started playing congas at that time in a coffee house. Drumming took a backseat to University until the late 80s. I started my comeback by playing in Mass. During the mid 90s, percussion became the main thing I did outside of my day job. I have specialized in percussion, playing instruments including a stringed flamenco cajon. I currently play with a number of songwriters and bands, up and down Vancouver Island. I recently started recording. I currently has recorded for songwriters on 27 CD’s with music styles including folk, bluegrass, celtic, jazz, rock, latin, and blues.
