Nate Tucker Music
"And the band! Rough Magic (Miche Braden, Michael Brun, Shaina Taub and Nate Tucker) transforms Tom Waits’ and Kathleen Brennan’s music into the perfect haunted accompaniment for the show.
This production is—there’s simply no other word for it—magical."
-Las Vegas Weekly
"Known for bridging the gap between classical and contemporary music, Tucker will perform works that combine ancient percussion with electronic instrumentation. Victoria Mansion’s ornate historic interiors, fully intact from the 1860s, provide an ideal visual backdrop for his synthesis of old and new forms."
- Gregory Sundik, bangor daily news
"Nate Tucker is one of those rare classical players that has jumped the fence! He still is regarded as an outstanding classical percussionist from his generation, but he has invested 10 years of his life to the study of World Music and Percussion and he is considered a "GO TO" guy in the Boston Area. (BM, Boston Conservatory & N.C. School of the Arts in Percussion Performance). I would consider any consideration you can extend Nate an investment in a rare breed of classical Percussionist who I am sure will continue to distinguish himself and be an inspiration to generations of classical players.
Please bet on Nate, I do!!!
