The 9th Annual Keith Hall Summer Drum Intensive was another huge success with 46 drummers, 2 pianists, 2 bassists, 2 vocalists, 2 trumpeters and 1 Hammond B3 organist! The performing and teaching staff, from L.A., NYC and many points in between, had a spectacular week at the Dalton Center at WMU and brought the house down two weekends in a row at the Union Cabaret & Grille. Next year is our big 10th anniversary, stay tuned for updates!
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.
Jazz Drums Now! Volume 2, the awaited follow up to Volume 1, is available now at www.KeithHallMusic.com. Volume 2 introduces brushes, New Orleans Second Line rhythms, the shuffle, and focuses on advanced comping and solo concepts, all with the Total Play-Along System on MP3 CD.
Registration is open for the 2013 Keith Hall Summer Drum Intensive and a picture of us was included in Downbeat Magazine’s 2013 International Jazz Camp Guide. Look at all those drummers!!
