At only 14 years old, Aiden has been playing professionally for over five years. At the tender age 5, he was already playing advanced drums on the video game Rock Band. His musical ability exploded when he began to play on his uncle’s borrowed acoustic drum kit. Soon after, he began taking lessons at Rockstars of Tomorrow Music Academy. His love for music and interest in drumming was noticed at a very early age from his rhythmic banging on empty containers and love for music. At age 9, he was asked to join the young boy band Minor Strut, who will soon hit their 5 year mark!
Last summer 2017, Aiden was asked to join the teen band Thursdays In Suburbia. His interests include going to live concerts, playing piano, bass, traveling, baseball, bike riding, riding his skateboard, watching movies and of course playing video games with his buddies. He loves his dog Taffy and is a crazy Lego builder!
Aside from playing with two very busy rock bands, Aiden loves to play Jazz. He has recently earned First Chair with his High School Jazz Band and Concert Band, an honor rarely bestowed on freshmen. He was also honored with a scholarship at the prestigious Idyllwild Jazz Intensive Summer Camp 2018 and earned several recognitions from RCC Riverside Community College 2018 Competition. Aiden has been recognized for his musical talent and writing ability from his Elementary School as well as Middle School.
Aiden has been endorsed by Amedia Cymbals USA since 2014.
Has played professionally since March 2014. They cover Rock, Alternative Rock and Rockabilly music from the 50’s to the present, as well as Original Music. Their musical talent and charisma have afforded them opportunities to perform in front of thousands of people at legendary venues, charity events, festivals and car shows all over California, Arizona and Hawaii, including the prestigious NAMM SHOW 2018.
Minor Strut has had the opportunity to Share the Stage and play with Legendary Rockers including Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Taylor Hawkins (Chevy Metal & Foo Fighters), Greg Bissonette (Drummer for David Lee Roth and many more), Everlast (Front man for House of Pain), Duff McKagan (Bassist for Guns N’ Roses), John Tempesta (Drummer for The Cult), Jonny Two Bags (Guitarist for Social Distortion and Cadillac Tramps), and Charles Glenn Jr. (Bassist for Little Richard).
They are an incredibly dynamic group of young musicians whose musical ability is not limited by their age or size. Their sound will definitely stop you in your tracks. From razor sharp guitars to back breaking drums, their rhythm is mesmerizing!
Minor Strut's debut EP 'Connected' was released on May 14, 2016 with four original tracks: What's Stopping You, Diggin' Holes, Connected and Racing to Somewhere.
