Ludwig Drums



Uwe Petersen is a drummer working and living in Los Angeles, CA. He was born and raised in Germany. While there (in the early 1990s) Uwe got big media attention as the drummer in the house band for a TV show called The Knoff-Hoff-Show. Knoff-Hoff was seen all over Europe, Japan, Australia and parts of the United States. "I was lucky enough to be part of the show for three years of its ten year run", he recalls. After that Uwe went on working in different Theater/Musical settings and toured the world with the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical Hair. The next couple of years have been a blur of touring and recording for him, with the multi gold-record-selling R&B supergroup Supercharge based out of Liverpool, England. After relocating to New York City in 2005, he had a dream come true, when Uwe got to record a bunch of tunes with New Orleans music legend, Dr. John. He also was involved in the Dirty Sock Funtime Band, a rock band for kids with whom he has bin seen on the Nickelodeon/Noggin TV show Jack's Big Music Show and played theaters across the country. Uwe stays busy in the LA music scene with his band, the U.P. Jazz Trio, studio sessions and private students. His book "Jump Start Drum Set Method" is available through Mel Bay publications.
