Lu Perez

Born January 19th ‘83 and raised in Puerto Rico, with a passion for music since very little. Also songwriter, composer and bass player, Luis Perez, known by most as “Lu”, was a kid who always had sticks in his hands and hit everything he could to make a sound. At a young age by listening to his brothers vinyl records, tapes and watching videos he turn his ears to everything rock by listening to bands like Stryper (this being his biggest influence) Firehouse, Ratt, Motley Crue, Guns N Roses, Whitesnake and so on. His goal as a drummer it’s timekeeping and blending through the music with his drums, though sometimes it requires a little complexity, that’s where the Dream Theater’s influence comes in.

Even though his passion for music started at early age, Lu’s dream of finally playing a drum set didn’t came true until his 18th birthday when he decided that if no drums will come to him then he will get to them. So he started saving everything he could to buy himself a drum set. At last, drums on hand, plenty of time to practice. It wasn’t long until he started a local band called “Water Stain” which would soon had to split due to members’ decision. Not so far from this rapture Lu then again tried to form another project called “Buried for 6 days” which was a Metal-Core band but also had to split. After every intent of making a band and always split up, Lu decided it was time to get some education. He joined the Inter American University with the major in Drums and percussion, where he learned to expand the horizons of his music knowledge.

As for this moment he has given a break to studies and devote himself to his new band “: ZuFall :” (www.myspace.com/zufallmusic) which has a little bit of rock/pop and alternative. With a big faith over his new band Lu finally finds himself in the right place and in the right time and wouldn’t let this opportunity to pass him by.
