"I've been playing Aquarian Drum Heads for over 20 years. Not only do they provide incredible richness and diversity in tone, but their longevity is unbelievable!"


Drummer/percussionist/producer Steve Moretti is a two time Grammy® Award nominee and winner of two Telly Awards.  His performances have been described as “powerful” (World-Herald) and “full of subtle nuance and excitement” (Cleveland Classic).  Steve has had an extensive recording career playing on over 30 nationally released recordings.  He recently made his movie debut playing live in the 2014 Clint Eastwood film, “Jersey Boys.” Frequently engaged for symphonic drum set performances, Steve’s recent and upcoming appearances include concerts with the symphony orchestras of Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Edmonton, Florida, Houston, Kitchener-Waterloo, Victoria, and Omaha, and the pops orchestras of Glendale, Hawaii and Macon. Steve is co-founder, President & CEO for Macon Pops, a new pops orchestra he has created in his hometown of Macon, GA with his long-time collaborator, conductor/performer/arranger Matt Catingub. Another facet of Steve’s career is his production company, Morettiman Music. His recent projects include producing the music for the nationally televised PBS special “A Grand Mercer Christmas” and for the recordings of singer Joshua Neal, Hip-Hop artist Floco Torres, soprano Leah Partridge, violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti, and two CityMusic Cleveland live recordings, one with cellist Matt Haimovitz, Daniel Rachev conducting, and the second, an all-Mozart concert, Joel Smirnoff conducting. Steve is currently serving his third term on the Board of Governors of the Atlanta Chapter of the Grammy® Recording Academy. He is endorsed by Pearl Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Aquarian Drum Heads, Audix Microphones, Future Sonics Ear Monitors and Vic Firth Sticks.
