John Fehling began his professional music career as a drummer in the early 1970’s. He grew up on Longs Island and began playing at the age of 15. In 1975 he performed on the “Live At CBGB’s” album. In 1979 he joined the East Coast Band and in the last 10 years has incorporated with his two partners. He has shared the stage with The Talking Heads, the Ramon’s, Wilson Picket, Dr. John, Tower of Power, the Shirelles, Martha and the Vandellas, John Belushi, and many others. He has also performed at thousands of social gatherings and weddings, including a TV spot on the late-night Huckabee show.
Versatility and perseverance are the reasons for his 40 years of success combining styles from the late 1930’s to current music.
