Summer is here! 

Hey Guys,
Things are rolling along so far this summer.

I'm working on some more lessons videos
and will post a few Ive done over the past few weeks.
Not a lot of commentating,just an exercise at varying tempos.
I have some transcriptions available if you need them upon request.
I tried to keep this process simple.
Just give you an idea,and show you how it sounds and looks from slow to fast,then back down (Largo-Presto-Largo),or 
Accelerando.
If you have any thoughts on the process,just drop me a line.

Also some shows are coming together for the fall with The Shannon Curfman band.
Beat Cancer Pittsburgh
I'll keep the show page updated as they roll in.

Hopefully I'll have some new gear to bring out on this small tour of the Midwest.
I've been looking into a few new kits.
I will for sure have a few new snare drums to try out on you!

Have a great summer!
Rock on.
 

Waiting for spring........(?) 

Hey everyone.

 

I'm waiting for spring in Minneapolis,as I"m sure a lot of people are.
Here are a few updates:

 

I have left The Cannon's North project,
and I will still catch a show when I'm in town.
They are currently looking for a few replacement members.
They will be missed,and I look forward to the release of the new album.


Rockin on Kid Rock's "Chillin With The Most Cruise"
with the Shannon Curfman Band was a success!
We had 3 great nights of performance.
I met some great people,played with some amazing musicians
and was able to have a great adventure sight seeing in the process.
Their are some future cruise's in the works for later this year.

I am trying to revive my camera to post some new pics from the trip.
I think the salt water may have been too much though.
Hopefully I can get something up on the media page.

I am also working on new material with The Rennegades,
to finish up the new full length album.
Their will be a music showcase in Minneapolis some time this summer,
with some tour dates as well.

I am also working with a local Minneapolis company to provide entertainers for their events,
so I will be busy traveling and helping them have great musical events.

I have been spending more time with the drums as of late on a more personal level.
I'm currently working on new techniques and polyrhythms.
More fluent four way coordination,and solo improve is also a goal for the summer.
Its time well spent,on something I love to do.
I will never perfect my art,
but the journey sure is a great way to spend my time!

More updates to follow.
Thank you for your support!
