Hello, My name is Tony Baptist and I am a drummer. I currently play for Ex Misfits singer Michale Graves, having done one studio record and three national and international tours with him. Prior to working with Michale I have gained an large amount of studio experience doing sessions for many artists. I look forward to working with you!

From Aug 2010 Issue of DRUM! Magazine

"Like B.B. King’s guitar, Lucille, sometimes drum kits have a talismanic power of their own. That was the experience of Tony Baptist when he sat behind the kit of Max Weinberg when he was in the Conan O’Brien/Springsteen drummer’s basement one afternoon as a kid, and soon won the legendary drummer’s admiration..... Tony lays down a pocket deep as a canyon, and busts fills that neatly state their business inside the space of, say, three notes."

I have been recording for artists in the NYC area for many years now, recording for bands and solo artists alike, some listed below.

In a studio situation, some areas of expertise include, experience with click tracks, live and in studio, taking Direction, efficiency, patience, and easy going.
