Drummer and percussionist Jeff Campitelli was bitten by the drum bug very early in life. He joined his first band at the age of 11 and got his first professional gig at the age of 16 playing at the Cow Palace in San Francisco in front of 15,000 people. As a senior in high school, Jeff met and formed a band with legendary guitarist Joe Satriani and at that point there was no looking back. Through the years he has made 21 albums (including 3 gold and 1 platinum) , 7 live concert DVDs with Satriani and has played on 15 Grammy nominated songs. With that many recordings comes lots of touring. Jeff has traveled over 1,000,000 miles and has played thousands of shows in over 40 countries. It is obvious that music has chosen him and there hasn't been a day since that he hasn't enjoyed making beautiful music.
