The Perrilles Project
July 6, 2019 at 5:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Paul Perrilles is a professional musician who derives from the Peoria, IL area. Born in Peoria,
Paul found his passion for drums at a very young age. The drums have been his family for 3
generations, and he picked up the drumsticks just like his father and grandfather did before him.
Using his sticks and his imagination, Paul is able to blend together a variety of musical genres to
fit into any style he is playing in the moment. He has played with many bands playing several
different genres from rock, to jazz, and even folk. His musical history includes a year-long stint
with The Way Down Wanderers, a fast-paced, soulful americana band that began in Peoria, IL.
Paul can be heard on the album “Path to Follow” with this popular folk group. Paul has also
shared the stage with Lenard Simpson, Adam Larson, Reggie Thomas, Geof Bradfield, Art
Davis, Victor Garcia, Tanya Darby, and Fareed Haque.
Paul is now pursuing a new musical endeavor called The Perrilles Project with some of the best
musicians in Chicago. The purpose of this group is to produce emotional genuineness within
“The first duty of love is to listen.” Paul Tillich
