PERCUSSIONIST | VOCALIST
From a young age, Gerald was raised with a passion and love for live music. At the age of 14, he began performing as a back-up vocalist and percussionist for Tropical Vibes band. As his love for music was becoming stronger each day, Gerald decided to start a new journey and form a band, becoming the front-man, of Malibu Brown. Malibu Brown performed at many renowned venues, which include: Baraki, Veludo, Alumbra, Number 5 and has also performed at numerous corporate events and private functions.
With his love of percussion, in 2009 Gerald began his journey of learning the arts of Brazillian Samba drums, under Carlos Ferreira (founder and teacher of MelSamba Bateria). Gerald mastered the different sounds of Samba, which inspired the beginnings of Speranza Drums.
In mid-2012, Gerald decided to perfect his vocal abilities, and joined David Jaanz singing school. Gerald then formed Speranza Drum-Live with a vision of delivering a fusion of live percussion accompanied by Melbourne’s renowned DJ’s. Since the formation of Speranza, they have performed at Melbourne’s hottest venues, Cuban Jazz Festivals, Rhythm in the Vines festival and Citibeatz Boat Cruises along with multiple Corporate functions, weddings etc.
Gerald is dedicated to providing the best in live entertainment and musical talent, to bring to you an experience that you have yet to come across.
