Billy Cobham will be live at the Ludlow Garage on October 2nd.


Billy Cobham was born on May 16, 1944, in Panama, where he grew fond of percussion from watching his cousin play. At age three, his family moved to New York City and at age eight Billy made his percussion performance debut with his father.

Cobham started his own band, Spectrum and signed with Atlantic Records. Spectrum’s debut album featured a mix of jazz, funk and rock that allowed Cobham to further experiment with percussion. In 1975, Cobham released “A Funky Thide of Sings” moving into commercial jazz exclusively.

Cobham left Atlantic and signed to the CBS label which allowed him to reach the commercial success he had always wanted in 1977. In 1988, Cobham helped start a group called ‘Jazz is Dead’ which reprised Grateful Dead music with jazz iterations.

Cobham started teaching drums online at the Billy Cobham School of Drums which is an ArtistWorks Drum Academy in 2011. In 2018 Cobham toured across the U.S. The tour re-comprised his original work from the 1970s which continued into 2019 as a celebration of Cobham’s 75th birthday. Cobham continues to tour worldwide.
