Veronica獲得傳奇搖滾鼓手Carmine Appice首肯及獲邀加入他的集活力、爆發力及體力要求於一體的團體「SLAMM!!」。以「瘋狂的跺腳」鼓手的美譽,Veronica與其他三個電子鼓手及一個吉他手一起參與了Appice的多場演出。SLAMM曾因為一段專為全國運動汽車競賽(NASCAR)拍攝的音樂錄影帶在ESPN頻道獲得百萬觀眾收視,該視頻中鼓手們坐在輪胎、工具箱、扳手甚至賽車引擎蓋上表演。

Currently playing with Legendary guitarist JEFF BECK.


Over the past few years, Veronica Bellino has been on the rise as one of the industries hottest, young drummer/songwriters. Veronica has been writing/recording with Hall Of Famer, Jeff Beck, has co-written with the legendary DMC, found a national spotlight in The Game’s “Red Nation” video, worked directly with LL Cool J as a member of his signed band, 13, and conquered dozens of stages with drum-icon, Carmine Appice and his SLAMM group.


Veronica found herself on the major circuit after joining Favored Nations Recording Artist, Rob Balducci’s full time band. Promoting his record “The Color of Light,” Veronica performed with Balducci from 2004 to 2007, participating in a UK tour with Richie Kotzen and US shows with Michael Schenker, Uli John Roth, Nuno Bettencourt, UFO, James Labrie, and Vernon Reid. In July 2006, the Rob Balducci band paired with label mate Dave Weiner (Steve Vai) for “A Night of Pure Guitar,” a week long tour of venues in Pittsburg, PA, Indianapolis, IN, Kansas City, MO, St. Louis, MO, and Chicago, IL.


With receiving recognition from the legendary rock drummer, Carmine Appice, Veronica was accepted as a member of his dynamic, explosive, physical drum show called SLAMM!! Described as “Stomp on steroids,” Veronica joined Appice, along with 3 other eclectic drummers and a guitar player to make rock music out of everyday items, as well as drums. SLAMM was seen on ESPN by millions, in a music video that was shot for NASCAR. The Slammers were featured wailing on tires, tool boxes, air wrenches, and the hood of a race car!


In 2007, SLAMM performed 7 sold out shows at the Cutting Room in New York City, and 3 packed shows on New Years Eve at a 3000 seat performance center in Providence. In 2008, SLAMM performed at the Dunkin Donuts Civic Center along with Twisted Sister, Tesla, Winger, and many others for the Providence Station Family Fund. SLAMM member, Zoilo Ruiz, also recruited Veronica to perform with his dance and percussion troupe called the “Street Beats Group.” Veronica performs at corporate events with Ruiz, along with others, delivering the excitement and energy of Off-Broadway hits such as “Blast” and “Blue Man Group.”


In February 2009, Veronica began drumming for LL Cool J’s Platinum Harvest recording artists, 13, illuminating the band’s hip hop-rock sound with her sense of groove and musicianship. The group hit Platinum Sound Studios in New York City to record their debut album, and filmed a national commercial for LL Cool J’s Sears clothing line. 13 continues to lay the ground work for a new direction of rock and hip-hop, captivating audiences on stages such as the 2009 New York Marathon, with their fun spirited and energetic live show.


Currently, Veronica is living in Los Angeles exploring her songwriting opportunities and recording drum tracks for Stop Making Friends, NCIS actress/musician Pauley Perrette’s band. She is also collaborating on songs such as “Attention Please,” which she co-wrote with producer MIKE 13 and DMC ( RunDMC). She took part as the drummer in the music video for the song as well, which is featured on CBS show, The Insider, in September 2011.


Veronica is also working with legendary guitar player, Jeff Beck, on a new record as a drummer, collaborator, and vocalist. Beck discovered Veronica’s drumming talents on YouTube, searching for “something different,” and contacted her right away. The two are extensively working on highly anticipated material in an LA studio. Once the record is released, Veronica will hit the road with Beck as his touring drummer.

With numerous gig commitments, corporate performances, and recording sessions, Veronica Bellino’s career can be safely assessed as on the move. Unanimous support from peers, press, and companies alike continues to propel her career to the next level. You can be certain that you’ll be hearing a lot from Veronica in the very near future!
