For New Orleans native Craig Washington, it’s music’s capacity to heal that has guided his entire career. With his unfaltering passion for all things music, he has spent countless hours crafting his abilities as a drummer and aims to share that same excitement and emotion with audiences in each and every performance. Above all, Washington plays from the heart, and from the soul.
Immersed in New Orleans music culture, Washington started playing the drums at a very young age. He was teaching others by the age of thirteen, and continuously developing his hard-hitting pocket while he rose to become a seasoned professional in the genres of Jazz, Blues, Motown, R&B and Funk.
Washington has performed at prestigious venues such as the Bourbon Street Music Club (Sao Paulo Brazil), Benaroya Hall, and NFL Hall of Fame. Additionally, he has played with The Band Oncore, Zhanea June, Funk E Fusion, Kevin Gardner, New Beginning’s Christian Fellowship, The Caballero 4 house band, and has completed seven tours in Brazil with Mr Kurt Brunus and The Kurt Brunus Project.
