Rich Dart began his association with The Monkees in 2010 when he started playing drums for Micky Dolenz during his solo performances. He joined The Monkees' backing band in 2012 when Micky, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork delivered a series of concerts in honor of Davy Jones.
Rich earned a Bachelors of Music degree from Keene State College in New Hampshire. Since then, he's had an eclectic career as a free-lance percussionist. Rich has played with various symphonies, jazz groups, theater troupes, rock bands, country bands, and percussion ensembles. He also played drums for Avenue Q on Broadway and for its first national tour, and traveled with a production of Pippin.
Rich is one of the founding members of the rockabilly band Creamed Corn and he also performs with The Illegitimate Sons of Keith Partridge.
Congratulations to Rich, who made the announcement of his association with Sabian earlier today on Facebook:
