Cirque du Soleil?s Quidam - United States
OverviewAndre’ Boyd, a native of St. Louis, began playing the drums at two years old. Watching his brother play every Sunday morning fascinated him so much so that after each service, he'd jump on the set and mimic what he heard first hand. At home, he played on everything from pots and pans, to his mother's living room furniture. It soon became evident that this was a gift from God and should be taken seriously. Not long after, Andre’ became the official drummer at his home church. From that point on, he played at concerts and all services affiliated with the church.
