Dennis Chambers Clinic Tour
The first date was at Cascio Music for their annual DrummerFest and according to Scott Thayer, it was their largest clinic attendance ever! After his performance on a Diamond Glitter MCX Masters Series kit, Dennis signed autographs for over an hour.
November 17th had Dennis performing to another SOLD OUT crowd at Daddy's Junky Music in Boston, MA. Before the clinic, Dennis had a chance to visit the Zildjian Factory which features one of his kits in the lobby. (Thanks to Craggie and John DeChristopher for their hospitality!) Afterwards, fellow Pearl Artist and Berklee instructor Mike Mangini brought his entire drumset class to soundcheck. This was also the first crowd of the tour to see the new Reference Series presentation by Raymond Massey.... everything and more that you ever wanted to know about Reference! Also in attendance was Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer.
The next two stops were in Portsmouth, NH at Daddy's Junky Music and Art Benson's Dynamic Percussion in Manchester, CT... standing room only and incredibly receptive crowds at both!
The last clinic was the biggest in Sam Ash history according to Al Veteri of the Edison, NJ store. After the Reference Series presentation (and t-shirt toss), Dennis played like never before and the crowd was over the edge with enthusiasm! In attendance were legendary drummers Lenny White (Return To Forever) and Mike Clark (The Headhunters).
Our thanks to all the participating dealers, the ever-amazing Dennis Chambers, and to all who attended!
