Marcel Rodeka Drums

Marcel Rodeka

Marcel Rodeka has carved out an exceptional career as a professional drummer. He fell in love with music at the age of 10 and got his first drum kit at aged 14 and has never looked back. At 19 he became a professional drummer, joining in the formation of international touring and recording act, Mother Goose, originally from Dunedin, New Zealand. He has been a professional working, drummer ever since.

For the last fourteen years he has been playing in his hometown Dunedin, with iconic group, Oxo Cubans. The Oxo brand of dynamic entertainment and quality musicianship covers a wide range of musical styles and is enjoyed by appreciative audiences from all over the planet. The band continues to keep Marcel very busy. He is also in demand as a fill in drummer for all manners of shows and recording sessions.

Over the last 18 years Marcel has built an enviable reputation as an inspiring drum educator. It’s here where Marcel challenges and shares with his students his many years of international touring and recording experience and his specialist knowledge and skills in all facets of being a drummer.

And as a drummer who once dressed up like a pixie and hurled speed and explosions at stadium crowds from behind his three bass drums, he is still, in 2021, totally at home living and breathing drums and educating others.
