Drum! Night in Nor-Cal
After hosting an incredible Drummer’s Reality Camp last month, we here at LA Music Academy have been going through some serious “legendary drummers withdrawal.” We were spoiled by the likes of Terry Bozzio, Thomas Pridgen, Gil Sharone, Ralph Humphrey and Alex Acuna to name a few. We are already counting down the days until next year’s DRC (not yet seen the photos? Check ‘em out HERE).
Anyone looking to solve that drummer withdrawal should seek out Drum! Night 2011 in San Jose. This year’s event features the Santana rhythm section of Raul Rekow and Karl Perazzo, Thomas Lang, and Terry Bozzio. Plus drummers who show up early can have a free technique tune-up with music editor Wally Schnalle, witness music demos, test new drum gear, and get in on a special autograph signing session with some special guest superstars. The editors of Drum! Magazine will also be giving out a special award to a local drummer.
Tickets are available on-line with Premium Seating costing $25 and general seating costing $20. Just seeing Terry Bozzio’s monster drum kit is worth that price! If you couldn’t tell, LAMA supports and encourages going out and socializing in the music community. Sometimes the best education is watching and learning from the pros. If you are able to make it please post a pic on our Facebook page and let us know what you learned. For more info and to purchase tickets please visit – http://www.drummagazine.com/drumnight.
