If you’ve listened to radio, danced at a club, or played a recording during the past 50 years, you’ve enjoyed the rhythms of legendary drummer Greg Errico. As a founding member of the influential Rock & Funk group Sly & the Family Stone. Errico’s innovative drum performances & use of the hi hat and bass drum on recordings like Dance to the Music, I Want To Take You Higher, Everyday People, Thank You Falettin Me’, Hot Fun In The Summertime and Stand, among many others, helped bring about fusion of Rock, Funk and Jazz. For this accomplishment alone Greg would have deserved his 1993 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… and the R&B Foundation “Pioneer Award” given to the group at the Apollo Theater in 2001. In the more than 40 years since Sly & the Family Stone broke up, Errico’s performances have been sampled well over 1000 times by various Artists & Bands. He continues playing and recording on some of rock and roll’s most historic LP’s and tours.

Playing has always been my number one interest, Errico states, “but writing and producing are also important. A complete musician has abilities and experiences in all areas. You explore your instrument… from writing and producing, one area strengthens another.” Greg’s writing contributions brought him #1 position on world pop charts in 2014 for the song “Timber”, which was also honored at the 32nd annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards for being among the most performed
ASCAP pop songs of 2014!
Other than raising a family in the San Francisco Bay Area, Greg stay’s active performing the music of Sly & The Family Stone w/various artists and is involved with Unity Music Foundation for which he has produced several recordings featuring many world class Jazz Artists such as the Count Basie Orchestra.
