Kurt Deutscher


Kurt’s thrilled to be back at PCS. His music career started at age 17 playing drums in the nightclubs and dance halls of Portland Oregon. He brings over four decades of professional experience to every performance and it’s evident in his steady timekeeping, dynamics, phrasing, and melodic solos. He’s equally at home in leading a jazz trio, supporting vocalists, or driving a big band. He’s played on dozens of professional recordings and is a former voting member of the Recording Academy. He is also an alumnus of the Armed Forces School of Music and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps Band. Kurt's day gig is leading NetRaising, a Certified B Corporation that helps nonprofit organizations succeed on the web.
