John Suntken is a drummer and educator currently based in Portland, Maine. From 2014-2020 he lived and worked in New York City, becoming one of the most in demand young drummers in the metropolitan area. Suntken is a musical chameleon who enjoys playing with artists from many musical traditions from R&B, funk, and rock to singer-songwriter, Afrobeat and jazz.

Suntken has performed with award winning artists, including Huntertones, Bob Lanzetti, Ben Stivers, Snarky Puppy, Joseph Gallant, two time billboard #1 country artist and songwriter CJ Solar, Grammy winner Dan Wilson, Felix Pastorius, and many others. He’s never had a favorite gig; it’s a joy for him to play with other musicians who love to make music.
