Craig Fundyga

Vibraphonist, pianist and percussionist Craig Fundyga is well-versed in just about every facet of music imaginable and his understanding of various music styles is simply amazing. This has enabled him to become one of LA’s premier session players. He has performed for famous dignitaries, presidents and for celebrities such as Liz Taylor, Barbra Streisand, Geena Davis and Quincy Jones, to name a few. You can hear his playing in numerous movies and he has performed on-screen in television shows such as Friends and Malcolm in the Middle.
 

Craig began to teach himself drums at age five. He received his first vibraphone at thirteen and immediately began teaching himself to play the "vibes". This self-taught approach to the instrument gave him a very unusual and unorthodox playing style. At the age of eighteen, Craig’s unique style was noticed by the legendary saxophonist Phil Woods and he was subsequently asked to perform on stage with Phil. 
       
In 1984, Craig moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles and he can now be found performing at various clubs, resorts and hotels throughout Southern California. He has taken his jazz quartet to various colleges as a guest performer, explaining jazz improvisation to eager young students.
