Al Berven has been a drummer for most of his life, receiving his first drum set by age three and never looking back. By age 15 he was playing professionally with people twice his age. Always looking to follow any opportunities that came his way has given him very diverse musical experiences.
In the more current phase of his musical life some of those opportunities include sharing the stage performing jazz with Polyphase, JAS Quintet, and the Jim Mckinney Quartet, Country with Dustin Evans and the Goodtimes Band, Rock Variety with Rewinder, and since 2002 has been the drummer in the popular group Kory and the Fireflies.
Other current and long time musical associations include playing live and in the studio with Dakota Road Music, doing recording sessions at Pulse River Studio for many diverse artists, and playing drums for Worship in Church.
For fun he started booking jazz gigs with some great musicians under The Al Berven Experience name, and hopes to continue building a musical experience that the audience as well the musicians will enjoy.
