About Brian

Brian O’Neill is a versatile multi-percussionist, drummer and composer based in Boston who has performed at The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, and Carnegie Hall among others. A “percussion master and musical polymath” (Boston Phoenix), Brian performs regularly in a wide variety of musical contexts including jazz, classical, world music, and theatre. In addition to freelancing, he leads Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica, which performs original global jazz and chamber music as well as the lost music of Esquivel (“deliciously entertaining”—Wall Street Journal). Brian also performs frequently with North Shore Music Theatre, Portland Symphony, Albany Symphony, and Boston Modern Orchestra Project. He has also played percussion for internationally known artists including The Who, Donna Summer, and the US tours of Ain't Too Proud, Motown the Musical and Anastasia. In 2020, he launched a new online music initiative in response to the Coronavirus called the Remotely Music Series. Follow Brian at crashandboom.com or on Twitter/Instagram (@orchestrotica).
