Craig Pilo has been Frankie Valli’s drummer for 12 years. A graduate of the University of North Texas College of Music, Craig’s past credits include Jefferson Starship, Maynard Ferguson, Edgar Winter, Pat Boone, Player, Billy Vera, Maxine Nightingale, and Jersey Boys Las Vegas. When he’s not touring with Frankie he writes music for TV/Film and teaches part time at the California College of Music in Pasadena, CA. Last year at Christmas, he released his third solo CD “Drummer Boy” which is available on iTunes and CDBaby. Craig’s choice snare drum of choice is a custom made Noble and Cooley!
"I was playing an outdoor show in Brooklyn NY and the backline guy set up a Noble & Cooley snare drum for me to try. I knew by the end of sound check that this was a drum I needed to make a part of my permanent set-up! I'm glad the crowd of 10,000 people who were there that night got to hear a drum sound I can completely stand behind!" -Craig Pilo
