Vater Drumsticks Welcomes Greyson Nekrutman


“Vater drumsticks give me unmatched confidence behind the kit. With Vater, I can find a model of stick for every style I play, and at the end of the day, that is key. What ties it all together is the fact that Vater truly feels like a family. I am honoured to join Vater.“  

Vater Drumsticks Welcomes Greyson Nekrutman 

Greyson Nekrutman has been making huge waves in the drumming world and has become a fresh inspiration for drummers worldwide. Greyson recently completed a sold-out clinic tour in the USA and Canada, has made highly viewed appearances on Drumeo, on top of appearances at major drum festivals around the world, while also touring with the legendary band, Suicidal Tendencies.

 In high school, his drumming caught national attention when he was named as one of the “Top-Performing High School Jazz Musicians” in the country and selected as the drummer for the 2019 All-National Honors Jazz Ensemble. But that’s not what launched Greyson into the global spotlight: his ‘singlehanded rejuvenation’ of the Big Band/Swing drumming of the Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman era, launched him into his very own international spotlight. His highly energetic, note-for-note / side-by-side video transcriptions of iconic drummers such as Buddy Rich, Philly Jo Jones, Louis Bellson (and many others) is filling a musical gap that was largely vacant for decades, picking up millions of viewers along the way.

 Greyson has also worked with Alice In Chains vocalist William Duvall where he recorded Duvall’s album, “11.12.21 Live-In-Studio Nashville”, and has also performed or recorded with Billy Howerdell, DJ Premier, Veronica Swift, Bakithi Kumalo, Darren Criss and more.

“It’s always exciting when a young musician comes along that has our whole industry buzzing. From his fans, professional drummers, retailers, educators, media outlets, and other manufacturers – Greyson Nekrutman is one of those players that has sparked such excitement as a rising talent and inspiration. Greyson can authentically play it all from jazz to punk to blistering metal and is a name to keep an eye on because he’s just getting started!  I am thrilled that he has chosen Vater and honoured to welcome him to our family.”

 – Chad Brandolini [Vater’s Director of Artist Relations]

Greyson is now using the Vater 5A Acorn, Power 5A and Nude Series Fatback 3A models, along with Vater brushes, specialty sticks and accessories.
