Luis Logrado

Luís Logrado (Licas Jr), born in Lisbon on June,26, 1993. Son of a father's love for drums, Luis was born with a drum set at home. Between six months and three years old, showed enough interest and talent for drums.

After a long pause, he returned to the eleven years with great grit and determination. Saw videos of Mike Portnoy, Dave Weckl, Akira Jimbo, Virgil Donati, Thomas Lang, Mike Mangini, Marco Minnemann, Travis Orbin, among others, and taught himself to them.

He bought his first Drumset with financial help from their parents, uncles and his piggy bank and counted with the help of a "great drummer", Daniel Rodrigues, for choosing the right drums and also teaching the right techniques.

In 2007 he participated in the contest "Yamaha Drum Sessions" getting 2nd place.

In 2008 participated in the master class, "Evora Cidade da Bateria" organized by Yamaha, where he had the opportunity to learn from "great drummers" as Pedro Barceló, Eduardo Lopes, Patti Ballinas, Wolfgang Haffner and Billy Cobham.

Despite all the influences, of which gave him the opportunity to learn from them, Louis has his own style. It's versatile musical styles, though their tendency is to shed more dedicated to Metal and Rock. Has good groove, technique and sound, but before their own assessment has not considered sufficient, continuing to demand of themselves day by day, more and more evolution.

To experience and developments that only live gigs provide he joined several bands of covers and originals, “Best Music Wins”, “Not So Perfect”, “In Chaos”, among others. By doing some projects with various bands, they gave him the ability to have studio experience.

Currently drummer for the bands: “After The Break” and “Defying Control”, which plays from north to south of Portugal doing concerts. Luis is also known on the Internet, where on YouTube already has almost half a million views, and one of the Portuguese drummers most viewed on YouTube.
