Marvin Smitty Smith Session Studio Classic Clinics

Marvin Smitty Smith's clinic dates took place on Tuesday April 23rd at TJ’s Music in Fall River, MA, Wednesday April 24th at DiCenso’s Drum Shop in Weymouth, MA, and Thursday April 25th at Volkwein’s Music in Pittsburgh, PA. He performed on a variety of Session Studio Classic kits including Matte Liquid Amber, Antique Ivory, and Sequoria Red. Volkwein's even had a Sheer Blue Session Studio Classic kit set up for everyone to try out.

Questions during the Q&A sessions varied from Smitty’s technique, playing with Sting and other artists, recording, drum tuning & his 15+ years playing on The Tonight Show. People were blown away by Smitty's incredible versatility as he dominated ever genre that he played... Funk, Fusion, Straight Ahead Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Rock, etc. It was great to see him 'outside of the television' to remind us what an incredible player he really is.

Thanks to all of the crew at TJ’s Music, DiCenso’s Drum Shop, and Volkwein’s Music for pulling out all of the stops! Make sure to watch Smitty's Clinic Announcements below...
