Ghost Funk Orchestra

Seth Applebaum

Composer, Multi-Instrumentalist

"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."

Megan Mancini & Justin Ferraro

Guitarist, Bassist, Singer

"When we hired Carlo, we knew of course that he was incredibly talented and versatile drummer. We were pleased to learn that he’s extremely professional, courteous, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Carlo took the gig on short notice and absolutely knocked it out of the park, nailing everything even though we only afforded him one rehearsal. Carlo is a patient collaborator, a diligent musician, and a joy to hang out with. What more could you want?"

Producer, Engineer, Mixer, Guitarist

"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."

Myles Peterson

Bassist

"Carlo is one of the hardest working and dependable musicians I know. I saw him go from the guy attending shows to the guy putting on shows and clinics in a very short amount of time. I've played with him in a couple of bands, and he's very versatile and basically lives in the pocket."

Scott Sugarman

Guitarist, Singer

"Carlo is an incredible session drummer both in the studio and on stage. He’s fluent in a wide range of styles and genres and always plays to fit the song—but if you need him to shred, he’s quite willing and able! Whenever I’ve worked with him, I can rest easy knowing that he’ll show up on time with the parts down. And he’s an incredibly considerate and friendly person on top of all that. I highly recommend hiring Carlo for your next session."

Arvelisse Ruby aka Lola Pistola

Singer, Guitarist

"When I needed a drummer to fill in for an upcoming gig, my first move was to put the word out in an Instagram story – that's how I first got in touch with Carlo Minchillo. From the get go, Carlo demonstrated he was a reliable professional, and an enthusiast learner. His dedication and commitment to the upcoming show was unparallelled. He made sure to always take notes when needed and practiced constantly the repertoire. His professionalism and knowledge came through, not only on rehearsal dates but also on the day of the show itself. A very focused and talented drummer, and a respectful and humble person."

Jamie Frey

Guitarist, Singer

"Carlo is a professional, committed drummer with tremendous work ethic. He was a great asset to the live group and a quick learner with a broad range of styles from Punk to R&B. In addition to metronomic time and a great sense of rhythm, he is likely the most punctual musicians I have ever met."

"When Carlo filled in for Bizarre Sharks, he was totally professional. He came to rehearsal on time, had learned and practiced all of the parts, and kept track of feedback. He slid into place easily and the gig went off without a hitch.

Gabe Smoller

Guitarist, Singer

"Carlo was a joy to work with. He advocated for as many rehearsals as possible and still found time to fine-tune his parts on his own before our session. He takes direction extremely well, is comfortable playing in many styles, and is an absolute professional in every aspect. I could not be happier with the recordings we made."

"In my decade-plus of playing in bands, I've met few drummers as passionate, diligent and capable as Carlo. He'll work harder than anyone else in the room, and you can tell he loves every minute. Hire him."
