STEVE STELMACH, Drums/Percussion
Multi-instrumentalist Steve Stelmach hails from San Diego, CA where he grew up playing drums and percussion.
He honed his chops playing in military clubs, church dances and private parties. He toured throughout the West with stalwart bands Mad Hatter and Starburst, performing in nightclubs throughout California, Arizona and Lake Tahoe. Steve also plays harmonica, guitar and keyboards. He joined The Storytellers as percussionist in 2018.
“I enjoy The Storytellers because they are like family,” said Stelmach. “I dig going on road trips together and meeting up in new places to perform, like farmers markets and ski resorts. I have the freedom to experiment with new percussion to interlock the grooves of the music. I feel fortunate to associate with talented musicians with good ears and singers that can put together spooky, mystical harmonies that take the songs to a higher level.”
When not storytelling, Steve plays in various drum circles as well as composes and produces electronic music in his home studio.
