Butch Merigoni is a drummer and arts educator based in Brooklyn, New York. After finishing graduate school in 2005 his focus shifted from painting to playing drums. A change that also led to choreographing solo movement and collaborative performance work.
His current projects include the band, Beasty, a bass, drums and guitar trio that make aggressively angular songs. Their second album, Bernard Hopkins, will be out next year. He also leads 'Workshop/Performance', a workshop that uses collaborative play as a way to navigate the unpredictable nature of collective performance making. Butch will be in London and Belgium this fall leading this project.
