Description

Mike Dillon, is without a doubt a gifted percussionist, that mostly at this point in his career dabbles in mallet instruments like the vibraphone, xylophone and marimba. In fact as you'll soon hear, not only does he play a multitude of these instruments, he has quite the collection of tools at his disposal that he has built up over the years. He has, as you could imagine, played with a whole host of musicians who have sought out his very specialized craft including, Les Claypoool, Rickie Lee Jones, Ani DiFranco, Garage a trois, and on and on and on.  He has had his own bands, been part of bands like Nolotet, and is just generally always up for a gig. While Covid has curtailed his extensive touring and playing all over the United States, he is still actively looking to make music with anyone he can. We recently sat down to talk about his new record Rosewood, and the conversation took so many interesting twists and turns. The conversation though started with the basics, and I asked Mike how he started on this mallet instrument journey...
