DEREK BATTISTA

 

Derek Studied music at west liberty college, he formed a solid musical background and did studio sessions for various songwriters. He is the founding member of Rumors and has been with Rumors since 1985.
He is very versatile at many styles and is always a reliable consistent part of the Rumors band.

I enjoy playing in the band, the thing that I love the most is watching a full dance floor enjoying the band.  Musically I've been inspired by old R & B and Classic Rock.  My favorite bands include Santana, Chicago, Kansas, Jon Luc  Ponty, to name a few. 

The Rumors Band has been great entertainment for me.  I never expected to still be playing like this for this long.  The guys in the band are family now !!
