Uncle Devin is an award-winning children's artist who specializes in Family Funk. He is the owner of The Uncle Devin Show, an interactive musical experience for children that uses percussion instruments to cultivate their minds - a dynamic cross between DC's Trouble Funk and Schoolhouse Rock. His performances, workshops and school residencies take children on a magical journey through the Land of Percussion that allows them to hear, see, and play different percussion instruments while gaining an understanding of the history of percussion and why it is one of the oldest forms of musical creativity.
Uncle Devin is both a drummer and percussionist, and, therefore, is known as "The Children's Drumcussionist." His drum set consists of a combination of real drums/ percussion instruments and the latest in electronic drums. This hybrid drum set allows him to play the normal drum groove while also playing different percussion instruments all by himself or with accompaniment. He also uses an assortment of percussion instruments, including cowbells, triangles, shakers, congas and timbales, as learning tools in his message.
