The 10th Annual KHSDI was another successful event that celebrated 10 years of jazz drumming and friendships! 43 drummers, ages 10-69 attended over the course of 2 weeks and they overwhelmed the crowd at the Union Cabaret & Grille in downtown Kalamazoo. Even Mayor Bobby Hopewell showed up to add his support and enjoy the music! Cheers to everyone for their support, music and love!

The cold weather and snow could not stop these dedicated drummers! We had a blast at Portage Central High School. Thanks to all of the talented students, the coaches, Pat & Rennee Flynn at PCHS, Remo Drumheads and Franco’s Pizzeria.
The KHDCX is a unique one-day experience, with a focus on playing in a drum set ensemble.
