It's been a long time coming: Bruner found his instrument at the age of four. That made him a late-bloomer in the house of Ronald Bruner Senior, who drummed with the Temptations among others.
His first bass was a black Harmony, and he practiced to the Ninja Turtles soundtrack until pops played him Jaco Pastorius.
He joined thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies as a teenager, and spent road and studio time with everyone from Stanley Clarke to Leon Ware, Snoop Dogg and Erykah Badu.
Eventually the name Thundercat stuck, a reference to the cartoon he’s loved since childhood and an extension of Bruner’s wide-eyed, vibrant, often superhuman approach to his craft.
For ages 14+. Under-18s should be accompanied by an adult.
