"If you're looking for professionalism, look no further than Carlo. He will always go the extra mile to ensure that he's ready to perform confidently and with plenty of gusto. I couldn't have been more pleased with how he handled our material, especially on a relatively short turnaround."
Ghost Funk Orchestra
"I’ve been lucky to work with Carlo in a variety of roles - recording him as a drummer and mixing records with him in the producer’s seat. Carlo’s passion, enthusiasm and ability lend themselves to any musical situation, and working with him is always a sincere joy. Plus - if you’re nice - he’ll bring you a loaf of his homemade bread, which is not to be missed."
