Say hello to Avery Drummer, real name Avery Molek a Washington, PA-based musician who can be seen nailing Alex Van Halen’s drum parts on Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher”

Avery has been taking private drum lessons since age 4. He applies his lessons when learning songs by ear and implementing his own feel, style & fills for the song(s).


Watch Avery be Alex here!

In addition to doing covers, Avery has played 15 shows all at the age of 5. Six shows were solo 1-hour concerts & 9 shows were playing in 4 different live bands spanning in 4 states. Most notable were The Hard Rock Cafe, The Illinois State Fair & Sturgis Fest “Bike Week” in Michigan.

As Radio Nova’s resident “wannabe” drummer.. I’m upset!
