Hi! My name is Izzy Lamberti and this is my first year participating in this amazing contest. I am a 15 year old high school student in Holmdel, New Jersey. I started drum lessons at 5 years old and have been playing ever since. I love to play and perform. Currently, I am in a pop, motown, jazz and church band. I had the honor to meet Jay and Max Weinberg twice at my drum camp in Lakehouse Music Academy in Asbury Park. Max Weinberg was very encouraging and saw potential in me. By chance I saw Max Weinberg performing at the Hard Rock Cafe in Atlantic City and he let me fill in for him. I knew then, I wanted to become a life long musician. My goal in the future is to write music and play the drums with a terrific band. This video is of me jamming to one of my favorite artists. My influences include: Max and Jay Weinberg, Will Calhoun, Bruno Mars, Nick Jonas, and the Beatles. Thank you!
