Paul's love of drumming began at age 8, when he started taking lessons from Big Band drummer and bandleader Baron Hugo. Paul has performed his entire life, beginning as a member of concert, jazz, marching and pit bands at his high school, joining the Percussion Section of the Screaming Eagles Marching Band at Boston College, and most recently performing with various local bands. In addition, Paul has been a private and ensemble percussion instructor for over 30 years. A friendship that was sparked with Eric Andrews through their sons who played drums together in junior high school, led to Eric inviting Paul to play in the New Legacy Swing Band. And as they say … the rest is history!
