Although he no longer performs actively, Bryan is a large fan of all types of music, and formerly performed with a variety of jazz and classical ensembles as a percussionist. Instead of performing currently, he gets his weekly dose of aural inspiration by frequenting many of NYC and SF’s music venues.
