In the year 2014, Modern Drummer Magazine listed Jojo Mayer as one of the 50 greatest drummers of all time. Swiss born Jojo first performed at the age of 2 with dad’s band. At age 18, he received his first international exposure during a world tour with Monty Alexander, supporting jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Nina Simone. In the early 1990s he moved from Europe to New York, where he worked as a sideman for a wide circle of outstanding artists. As a leader, he created his own unique style with NERVE, which established him as one of the greatest performers and innovators of drums.  His advanced concepts and techniques of “reversed engineering” (electronic bits in real time on an acoustic drum set) introduced a new paradigm and opened door for a whole new generation of musicians.
