I highly recommend Paul Babelay to those seeking a highly skilled, dependable, professional musician.” Ray Hair
I have often teased about drummers as one-sided players but Paul is absolutely a trained percussionist! He is at ease at the drum set but equally, if not more, talented and gifted as a mallet player. Did I mention great pianist and he has “great ears?” Doug Phillips
And then I heard his vibraphone playing… There are great drummers who can get by on vibes and there are great vibes players who can sort of play drums but to be highly skilled and a great improviser on top of that is VERY rare. I can only name a handful.
I recently had the opportunity to ask Paul to play on recording artist and Broadway star Linda Eder’s new Christmas CD. Paul played the perfect solo that is on the opening track! On top of all of this he’s what they call ‘good people’ and I can rely on him as a musician and as a friend- a truly wonderful thing. Kim Scharnberg
