Jeanine Dell'Orfano

United States

Teacher/School: Fran Merrante

This is my second year entering HLAG! I have challenged myself this past year to really grow as a musician and I am having fun playing different genres of music. I will soon be going into my 4th year of playing this instrument and I am super proud of myself for remaining dedicated and working hard to improve daily. I am currently the drummer for the DB Kinney Band, a local indie rock band in Connecticut. We play covers and originals at local venues and festivals. My dream is to do session work someday.  Some of my favorite drummers and biggest influences are Jeff Porcaro, Rick Marotta, Stewart Copeland, JR Robinson, Taylor Hawkins, Anika Nilles and Emmanuel Caplette. I wanted to cover this very awesome Foo Fighters tune that I love as my tribute to the very missed Taylor Hawkins. It’s one of my favorite Foo Fighters songs. I hope you enjoy my submission.

    You are a very solid drummer. If you aren’t in a band you should be.
