Dre Energy is a drummer for the Cirque Du Soleil show Quidam. He has held the gig for roughly six years and the story of how he got that gig is very inspiring. The moral of that story is about why we sometimes need to follow our hearts and go for broke sometimes.
Originally, Dre Energy began playing the drums at the age of two. He has also never taken a lesson, but of course has utilized any resources available to become the exceptional player that he is today.
Dre is from Las Vegas, Nevada but he is almost always somewhere else. The gig with Cirque historically been one that requires Dre to perform some 300 nights per year. In addition to that, he is also in high demand internationally for clinics. China seems to be a country that really enjoys Dre in particular. He is also an entrepreneur for his own practice pads, shoes, cymbal line with Samsun and a new innovation that is yet to be released – and up until this point, it is something that has been shrouded in mystery. All in all, Dre Energy is a force on the drums and possesses an extremely high work ethic.
This episode is packed full of wise and pragmatic advice from a man who has been there and done that. Dre prides himself on telling it like it is. This episode will be helpful for drummers who feel that they need an endorsement to advance their career. This episode clarifies that hard work – with direction and focus – really is what gets things going in a forward motion. Overall, this episode is geared to inspire, educate, and motivate drummers into a state of progress and clarity.
I also recorded a special monologue at the very beginning of this episode where I talk about having a purpose and a trajectory for your practice routine. I share my own personal story with this and I hope that it puts the fuel in your tank to hit the shed with proper focus to achieve greater results with your craft. If you combine drive and intent with the amazing resources that are available online, including Drumeo, I believe that anyone can become the drummer that they want to be in this life.
