Scott Laningham: musician

I began working professionally during high school in the late 1970’s, performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1978 with my school ensemble, and have been a popular drummer in the Austin, Texas music scene for over 30 years. Today, I’m a core member of the award-winning soul jazz group Church on Monday, led by saxophonist Elias Haslanger (Maynard Ferguson Orchestra). I also perform regularly with Alejandro Escovedo, with Mitch Watkins & Chris Maresh in TresMusicos, with trumpeter Ephraim Owens (when he isn’t on the road with the Tedeschi Trucks Band ), and with organist/pianist Red Young.

A partial list of my other performance or recording credits includes work with Andre Hayward, Dr. James Polk, Mike Flanigan, Kevin Lovejoy, Eric Johnson, Van Wilks, Christopher Cross, Kat Edmonson, Hailey Tuck, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kirk Whalum, John Fremgen, Peggy Stern, Beto y los Fairlanes, Mose Allison, Tony Campise, Steve Allen, Rodney Dangerfield, Don Rickles, Bob Newhart, Mark Hallman, Suzi Stern, Carmen Bradford, Gabriel Santiago, Kellye Gray, Paul Glasse, Rich Harney, and the Nelson Riddle and Creative Opportunity Orchestras.
