A lifelong musician, Gabe began playing music at age 5 and was performing by 12. A NJ/NY native, Gabe studied drum-set/composition at the New School Jazz program in NYC before relocating to New England.
As studies with Charlie Persip and Bob Gullotti honed his technique, demand for Gabe as a musical and creative sideman grew.
He has joined artists such as Peter Apfelbaum, Grace Potter, Joe Lovano, Greg Tardy, Nina Nastasia, Kat Wright, Thomas Chapin, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell, Will Bernard, Marco Benevento, Karl Berger and many others for musical performances large and small.
Gabe has performed internationally at venues including the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, Holland; The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA; High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, CA; Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN; the Gramercy Theater in NYC; and the Willisau Jazz Festival in Willisau, Austria.
