Anthony Novak - Drums


Anthony Novak started playing drums at age 7 and has been playing ever since. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, where he played for about five years with a well-known local band called the Nixon Clocks, in addition to playing with some smaller projects and doing session work. He came to Virginia in 1999 and besides Round About, he plays with a pop/rock/hip/hop cover project called Over The Line, and a passion project called The Pugilists.

He also continues to do session work, pickup gigs, and open jams all over the DMV. In the past, he's been in local projects including The Hip Replacement, The Karma Issue, Her Next Friend, and Analog State. He's played everything from country (?!), to jazz, to theater/stage, to funk, to rock, and even had a brief stint as a teacher. He also holds the dubious distinction of being the only person (he knows of) to have been run over by a parade float.
