21-year-old drummer Evan Sherman, a native of New Jersey, has played with the world's greatest musicians, including James Moody, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, and he was recently hired by Jimmy Heath and Ron Carter to play drums in their bands. He continues to tour with pianist Cyrus Chestnut and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars, with whom he performed at Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow in 2011. In the past year, Evan has also travelled to Doha, Qatar and Shanghai, China as a Jazz at Lincoln Center performer, teacher, and ambassador of music.

Evan has performed at famed international venues such as The Kennedy Center and Blues Alley (Washington D.C.), the LA Convention Center and GRAMMY Museum (Los Angeles), Jazz at the Bistro (St. Louis), and Jazz Showcase (Chicago). He has played with headliners on the Jazz Cruise, as well as at festivals including the Rochester Jazz Festival, Litchfield Jazz Festival, DC Jazz Festival, Twin Cities Jazz Festival, Bellevue Jazz Festival, TriBeca Film Festival, Detroit Jazz Festival and others.

When not touring the world, Evan is based in New York City, where he has performed at The Blue Note, Symphony Space, Jazz Standard, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Small's Jazz Club, Smoke Jazz Club, Flushing Town Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, among other notable venues. Besides being a sideman, he is also leader of the Evan Sherman Big Band: a multi-generational ensemble of the most talented up-and-coming jazz musicians alongside veterans of the industry. The band performs monthly at Jazz at Lincoln Center's increasingly-popular "Dizzy's Dance Party", where people of all ages and cultures congregate, dance and socialize into the wee small hours. Evan believes that while jazz is an art to be listened to intently, it is deeply rooted as a social music.

Evan will receive his bachelor's degree from Manhattan School of Music in May 2015. He is especially grateful to his mentors, Neal Smith and John Lee, for their invaluable guidance and support.
