TAUK / Solo Artist - United States
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Isaac Teel is a music making machine. Having over 20 years of drumming/music experience, he has mastered the art of professional drumming, performing in over 2000 venues all over the country and Ccanada, including the Madison Square Garden Theater, Red Rocks Amphitheater, the Roxy LA and Jones Beach Theater. His nickname/ stage name, Mr. Funknasty, gives a mere glimpse of the funky hard hitting grooves that ooze from behind the kit.
Molding his gospel roots with studies at the Drummers Collective in New York City, his skills evolved in to a well-oiled producing and recording artist. Perfecting such genres as rock, r&b, afro-cuban, funk, and hip-hop. Winning the store finals in NYC’s Guitar Center Drum-Off two consecutive years 2006-2007, his name spread as one of the up-and-coming young musicians hitting the NYC scene. He has played with such artists as fabolous, r&b artist Jon B, gospel recording artist Dorinda Clark Cole, and a host of other talented artists and groups.
Now touring with his rock/fusion band TAUK while recording his solo debut album, he believes that with the right combination of hard work and discipline, anything can be achieved. Isaac loves teaching the art of percussion and drumming to all and is blessed to continue learning all he can about music.
