Liam MacDonald | Dragon RougeLiam MacDonald (Canada)
Percussion/ Drums

Liam’s life as a drummer/percussionist began when he was 9 years old in Kitchener, Ontario when his uncle, who was a professional drummer, left a beautiful set of old Rogers drums in the basement of the house he grew up in. After a few years of orchestral percussion lessons, he started playing in clubs with Rock and R & B bands and continued to do so throughout his teens.

In 1997 Liam relocated to the West Coast and has been calling Vancouver home for the last 15 years. Since Liam has been in Vancouver he has been equally in demand for his Drumset playing as well as his abilities as a Multi-percussionist, this has led him to working with an extremely eclectic mix of projects.
