My Story

Elio Piedra was born in Cuba and began his musical career at the age of ten at the Arts Conservatory Raul Sanchez. At fifteen, he gained entry into the National Conservatory of Music Carlos Hidalgo where he continued to hone his craft, even touring Cuba with the symphony orchestra.

Elio immigrated to the United States at the age of twenty and began playing with many notable musicians in Miami. He eventually relocated to Gainesville, FL, where he lives with his wife.


Highly in demand, Elio splits his time between live shows, drum instruction, and touring with his group, Elio’s Quartet. He has performed shows at the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, and the Hippodrome, as well as various events in support of the community, such as UF’s Dance Marathon, Mi Apá Latin Cafe’s 15th Anniversary Block Parties, and Okito America’s Family Private Events.

“Hire Elio today to play at your upcoming event, no matter the size or venue, even out of state! Whether it’s a birthdays party, wedding, corporate functions, grand opening, private events, or anything else under the sun, Elio is up to the task!”
