All of us at Vater are very excited to support Trevor Lawrence Jr. (Herbie Hancock/Everlast/Independent) and Jim Riley (Rascal Flatts) at the 2011 Modern Drummer Festival.
Produced since 1987 by Modern Drummer Magazine, the world’s most widely-read drumming publication, the Festival presents a roster of today’s top drumming talents, representing a variety of popular musical styles. Some offer solo “clinic” performances; others appear “in concert” with additional musicians. All share their talents in an educational and entertaining format that has made the MD Festival a must-see event for drummers around the world.
This years festival will take place on May 21, 2011 in Montclair, New Jersey.
