MICHAEL TATE and 3D Rhythm of Life


Michael Tate, drummer and bandleader of the group 3D Rhythm of Life, continues his journey by merging the sounds of Latin, Rhythm and Blues, Reggae and the flavors of the Caribbean creating what he calls “Latin-Tropical-Soul”.

Michael grew up in his native New York listening to the music of Tito Puente, Luther Vandross, The Meters, José Feliciano, Eddie Palmieri, Juan Luis Guerra and many others. His interest in drumming began at the early age of 6 when traveling to the islands of St. Thomas and Barbados. At 12 he began to study music and has been influenced strongly by significant mentors such as Yogi Horton and Bonny Bonaparte. Playing with Kid Creole and the Coconuts exposed him to the rich sounds of West Indian, Afro Cuban and World music, these are a part of his musical foundation.

Chris Amelar, co-founder of the band, began his studies of music on piano and trombone, eventually discovering the guitar at age 13. Amelar graduated from William Paterson University, studying with jazz great Rufus Reid. His early guitar influences were George Benson, Al Di Meola, Carlos Santana and recently the sounds of the Cuban Tres.

Lenny Underwood on Keyboards (formerly with Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan) is a Bronx native. He has been a core member of the group recording and performing with 3D for over 10 years. He brings his rich musical flavor to the music.

3D Rhythm of Life’s latest release FANTASY is their new video single and the title of the full album coming in the Fall of 2016.

For this production, Michael Tate invited 2 outstanding vocalists to join him. Chris Alfinez (formerly with Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez) and vocalist Bonny B (Spyra Gyra). Also featured on this exciting new recording is Grammy award winner Ricky Gonzalez. Dance, Listen and Enjoy. “The Fantasy is Reality”
