Ronnie Magri is a noted American drummer, percussionist and producer who can be heard in many different musical circles. His style of playing is varied and he has been associated with artists in the rock, rhythm & blues, punk and jazz genres.
Magri's drumming style displays a diverse set of influences, from early jazz drummers like Gene Krupa to Earl Palmer and the early drummers of rock & roll. It is in subtly combining these influences as well as the drum stylings of New Orleans "street beats" & "second line drumming" that Magri's style is truly brought forth. -

"The music on the CD is uniformly excellent... Magri and associates swing and they have fun doing it. You may have heard 'Moonglow' or 'Stormy Weather' or 'Mood Indigo' before, but never with such a sweltering, scintillating sense of satiny sleaze." Offbeat Magazine New Orleans
