After 1 year of private lessons, he starts a Jazz diploma at the Alma College with teachers Richard Dallaire and Robert Pelletier, during autumn 1998. In spring 2002, he completes a specialization in Pop Musique at Marie-Victorin College in Montreal. At the end of summer 2002, he joins the Drum Bazar team as a drums and percussion specialist. He also participates in various pop-rock, black metal, death metal, hardcore projects. Since then, he also founded the band BLOODFEAST, a tribute to MISFITS and performs regularly with them. At the store, he is still an adviser and expert in drums tuning. He will surely guide you towards the right instrument for you!
Drums Specialist & Floor Manager
Cartoon sounds and 30's jazz brought him to play drums at around 15 years of age. He is also appalled by ska, pop and alternative rock, and wanders through music bars in the city. At that point he already plays in corporative gigs.
Bruno joins the Drum Bazar team on St-Zotique street in 1999, though still very active in graphical arts. It's only in 2006 that he joins the team full-time. He is a reference for advice concerning cymbals, drumheads and other drumming secrets.
Drums and Ukulele Teacher. Drums Specialist. Backstore.
Maxime started playing drums when he was 12 years old, and he understood very quickly that he needed to learn a lot of different styles to become a full-fledged musician. He participated in different projects, including groups playing african music, metal music, funk and jazz. In 2005, he completes a Double DEC, combining the study of drums and social sciences at CEGEP Marie-Victorin. In winter of 2010, he obtains his university diploma in music therapy at l’UQAM. Since 2004, he teaches drums and is a member of two musical projets as a drummer: Diokko, african Pop music and Noise, a funk music quartet. For his studies and his work, Maxime is always learning how to play new instruments: piano, ukulélé, and a lot of percussion instruments, to name a few. Maxime now also teaches ukulélé when he gets the time.
Micaël started to play guitar when he was 13 years old. Back then, his influences were closer to punk music, but soon after his tastes grew to gain more styles. Classic rock becomes his new religion, with The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and countless others. Though selftaught, after a few years of jamming with friends, he joins rock 'n' roll band ASTRO HOT. However, meeting drummer Erwan Le Brenner in 2007 completely changed the way he performed. Since then, the two musicians formed the band BLOODFEAST, to play a style aptly called horror punk. Micaël was always very interested by musical instruments and accessories, and will surely be able to answer your needs and questions!
