Voyce McGinley III
Ultra-skilled percussionist Voyce McGinley III tours internationally with the Golden Globe and Grammy Award Winning recording artist, Kitaro. His performance credits also include work with Airto Moreira & Flora Purim, Alan O’Day, Cirque du Soleil, Deniece Williams, Donovan, Eric Burdon, Jeff Scott Soto, Kilauea, Stevie Wonder, Yukiko Matsuyama, The Walt Disney Company, and many more. We’re getting dizzy just thinking about it.
Voyce originally marched with J.D. Blair in the highly acclaimed “Million Dollar Funk Squad” at Norfolk State University, which served as the basis for the hit movie “Drumline”. It was there, under the direction of Sergeant Major Myles E. Overton, that Voyce developed his signature aerial back-sticking style. Voyce also trained with Virginia Symphony principle percussionist, John Paul Lindberg, and with Los Angeles studio great, Gregg Bissonette, as well as studying at the Berklee School of Music and at the Percussion Institute of Technology, Hollywood. Now a respected instructor himself, Voyce is the author of two Mel Bay Publications: Superchops for the Drum-Kit, and Mallet Mayhem. Primarily a Pro-Mark Drumstick endorser, Voyce uses his Hiptrix 2Bs to amp up his level of showmanship wherever the situation calls for it.
