After high school, Don Schiff moved from his native Delaware to Las Vegas and soon became the House Bassist in showrooms at both the Flamingo Las Vegas and Hilton Hotel.
Don got his first Stick in 1975, making him one of the earliest adopters of our favourite instrument. By the end of the decade, he was using it live and in the studio, and has either recorded or performed with, well, everybody!
In 2000, Don got one of the first NS/Stick prototypes. He has not only composed and recorded with the NS, but also developed playing techniques for this unique, hybrid instrument.
Don is fueled by donuts and his rider demands that we be near Tim Horton's!
