Cosmos Percussion Ensemble

John Hannaford David Hight Alphonse Meredith


Cosmos Percussion Ensemble is a group of Professional Percussionists, John Hannaford, David Hight, and Alphonse Meredith.  These three percussionists have a deep experience background in performing with a range of groups.  We have performed at large festivals (BotlleRock, Earth Day San Francisco-Mosconne Center, Green World Music Festival), respected venues (Napa Valley Opera House, CIA COPIA), prestigious events (Festival Napa Valley), and venerated clubs (Askenaz, Last Day Saloon). Cosmos Percussion Ensemble has both Headlined, and opened for many amazing bands. We deeply care about the experiences of our audience.  Our Performances and events will fully engage your audience/guests.  

We can also create an intimate experience for small gatherings and large groups alike.  We can offer a quiet background of soothing Cajons, the warmth of the Conga, or the more present and infectious polyrhythms of the Djembe and Dunun.  We have groups of ancillary artists that we can also incorporate into our performances when called for, such as multiple dancing groups, fire artists, and special melodic guests.  We are also able to perform as a percussion section for existing bands, or create a fun and inclusive interactive experience for you and your guests (workshops both private and corporate).
