NJ School Of Rock - My9 New Jersey

NJ School Of Rock

Posted: Updated:
Newtown, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Ewing’s Rich Scannella, a professional drummer, has made his rock and roll dreams a reality. He’s played with Garden State legends Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and Southside Johnny.

Scannella started out by playing locally while he was growing up. Eventually he found his way to the shore, where he met Bobby Bandiera. “Bob’s a guitar player, and he was with Southside for the last twenty-five years. I also started working with Jon, doing his solo stuff. He ended up doing some shows with Bruce, so he got me on a lot things.” He said.

Recently Scannella toured South America with Bon Jovi. He covered for the original drummer, Tico Torres, as he recovered from an appendectomy. Scannella said it was a blast and a massive responsibility. “People are used to hearing those songs. Any band, iconic band or classic band, like Bon Jovi, that’s like a soundtrack to people’s lives. You’ve got to respect that.” He said.

His advice to young musicians is to practice as much as possible and play for the love of it. If you want to learn, you can contact Rich Scannella at www.richscannella.com or sign up at www.newtown.schoolofrock.com.
