BIOGRAPHY

It did not matter how much Isaac would be kept away from his dad's drums, it was a matter of time before everyone in his family would realize that he too had "it"; the music was in his veins and he would inevitably end up following in his father's footsteps. Isaac, the grandson of Rafael Velasquez a great trumpeter and Jazz Pioneer in Venezuela and the son of Ivan Velasquez, the most sought-after drummer in the Venezuelan music industry was destined to be the one to continue the musical legacy in his family. Because his father's full time job consisted of rehearsals, live concerts, and recording sessions Isaac's favorite thing to do was "accompany him to work" and study the ropes of what it entailed to be a drummer.
 

 In 2003 he moved to Miami, FL where he started working professionally playing around town and doing recording sessions for various artists in a wide range of music genres. In 2010 he was a member of the house band for a Spanish network  TV show called "Battalla de Las Americas", a singing competition that was broadcasted in over 30 countries. Isaac has toured with Latin artists Fanny Lu (Latin Grammy Nominee) Charlie Zaa, Guillermo Davila, and  Andres Cepeda among others. in 2011 he became a member of Kukaramakara’s house band; a high-end club located in the heart of Brickell, Miami, where he had had a five-year tenure.

 

Isaac became a well-respected drummer in the Miami music scene and has worked with Karina, Marcela Cardenas, Erika Ender, Los del Rio (La Macarena), Braulio, Leo Dan, Miami Symphony Orchestra, Chelito De Castro, Leo Quintero, Milton Salcedo, Federico Britos, Dave Muse (Firefall) and Nestor Torres, Jerry Navarro, Rhonda Adkins Company, Justin Blazer, Charlsey Etheridge among others.
