GIBRALTAR WELCOMES LADY GAGA'S DRUMMER - GEORGE
March 14, 2012
Philadelphia-born drummer George "Spanky" McCurdy's innovative drumming style is a definite force to be reckoned with on and off the stage. At the young age of 13, Spanky was already using his gift of music in local venues, and by age 20 he landed a gig with gospel phenomenon, Tye Tribette. Spanky's talent and skill did not go unnoticed. He quickly caught the attention of various artists and performed with Diddy, Jill Scott, Les Nubians, Ciara, and many more on various tours across the country.
When off tour, he's also been building an impressive resume of recording credits including Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Mariah Carey, Brandy, Bubba Sparx, and Kiley, just to name a few. Spanky: "I just want to give thanks to God, and say that I'm just really grateful for all the opportunities I've been blessed with thus far. I'm gonna continue to work hard and learn as much as I can, and just keep it going!"
