Bio – Lenny Castro

LENNY CASTRO, Percussion

At age 19, Lenny honed his chops playing with salsa bands like Johnny Colon and Eddie Palmieri, until Melissa Manchester discovered him working in a drum shop and he joined her band and moved to LA.

He became a fixture in the musician scene, working with endless greats, recording with the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, U2, Elton John, Joe Sample, Boz Skaggs, Ricki Lee Jones, Adele, Wayne Shorter, Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock…it would be easier to say who he didn’t play with. .

And he was and is a member of the iconic studio musicians’ band Toto.

“Percussion can go in almost any kind of music. You have to be open-minded enough to try it”
