Sensory assault! DRUM! Night 2013

hazelzworld

Several months ago, Fleur sent me a message about a fundraiser that Drum! magazine was hosting in San Jose, CA. I checked out the website and saw that Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers was going to be performing and thought, “What the hell, why not.” I am not a drummer, but Fleur is. She started taking lessons earlier this year. Her birthday was coming up and I decided that it would be a gift for her. I knew she would love the event. I was blown away at how awesome the night was. I  thoroughly enjoyed the evening and learned a few things about drumming.  The performances/clinics given by the Street Drum CorpsJason Bittner, Cindy Blackman Santana and Chad Smith were  fantastic, as was the private clinic on e-drumming, hosted by Yamaha and Zildjian and given by Bob Terry. Here are a few pictures from that night.

Some of the best quotes from the night:

“I’m going to assault your senses.” ~Jason Bittner

“Let the music breathe.” ~Chad Smith

“Never let anyone disturb your peace.” ~Cindy Blackman Santana
