Marcie Chapa is herself luminous: a dazzling stage artist, and one of the elite performers in the music industry today. As the celebrated percussionist for the most decorated performer of the modern era, Beyoncé, Marcie combines form, energy, style, and explosive percussive talent with a natural gift to share and inspire. Traveling the world, rocking sold-out arenas, giving freely of her time to children and aspiring musicians through volunteer programs in the Houston area… She’s no less than living proof that dreams really do come true.
Marcie’s talent and relentless tenacity financed her way to the illustrious New School for Jazz and Contemporary School of Music in New York City, and found her playing professionally for crowds of thousands by the time she was 18. She’s since seen action with over half a dozen Grammy Winners, performed all over television and in chart-topping videos, and has even been featured on the cover of Drum! Magazine. Ms. Chapa endorses gear from Meinl, Remo, Taye, Hansenfutz, and Pintech, as well as Vic Firth sticks, but when she’s looking for extra fun and added visual spice, she’s been known to accent with Hiptrix… and that’s more than cool with us!
