“I use a typical 5-piece drum set augmented with some standard percussive effects: splash cymbal, china cymbal, ratchet, temple block, cowbell, tambourine, mark tree, conga, and a Miller Machine with mounted triangle.

Our revival is enhanced by wonderful circus elements so, in addition to Pippin's classic rock and pop songs, several tunes have been arranged to include specific drum and percussion circus-style accompaniment. I was fortunate to be involved in the cast rehearsals leading up to the Broadway opening. The dance choreography from the pre-Broadway run at A.R.T. in Cambridge, Massachusetts was enhanced and in some instances completely revamped prior to the Broadway run.

Director Diane Paulus and choreographer Chet Walker are wonderfully creative and fostered an open working environment. The process was incredible. A lot of the choreography that was tweaked in cast rehearsals was translated in to the percussion book so that we (the percussionist Sean Ritenauer and I) could both breathe a little bit more. Sean came up with some great circus-style accompaniment in some of the crazier numbers.”

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
