Now in its second year, the Manchester Drum Show is a very special event for drummers and percussionists from Manchester and surrounding areas, featuring product showcases, drum clinics and live performances by top drummers. There's no other drum event like this in the North West, and of course PMT House Of Drums Manchester will be participating!
There's no doubt this Manchester Drum Show will be very special, and a fun packed day for any drummer able to attend the event, so make sure to put the date on your diary: Sunday 17th May 2015, at the George H. Carnall Leisure Centre,(opp. The Trafford Centre), Manchester, M41 7FJ. You can get your tickets for the Manchester Drum Show here.
You'll be able to check some great drum gear, swap tips and ideas with other drummers and maybe even learn some new things, besides being able to check two extraordinary drummers showcasing their skills: Robin Guy and Gabor Dornyei.
Guy is a respected session drummer who's toured and recorded with people such as Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Bernie Torme (Ozzy Osbourne), TM Stevens, Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), GMT, Bay City Rollers, Rachel Stamp amongst many others, clocking over 65 bands to date. His unique sense of rhythm, fusing rock solid grooves with reggae/ragga beats incorporating the use of organic/industrial sounds, makes his groove very distinctive:
His performance is described as animated, flamboyant and entertaining, and he's a regular of drum clinics around the UK.
Gabor ‘Gabs’ Dornyei is one of the hottest players to emerge out of Europe in recent years, and he’s been on the cover of several European drum magazines and had major features in various others including Modern Drummer Magazine’s current (April/2015) issue. Possibly you heard about him sharing the stage with the likes of Tommy Campbell, Jojo Mayer, Billy Cobham, Gavin Harrison, Ian Paice, Steve Smith, Dom Famularo, Carl Palmer or Chris Cole-man, for instance.
Besides the live performances, there'll be plenty of things to check out at the Drum Show, with top brands such as Roland, Vic Firth and Remo showcasing.
PMT House of Drums will be marking its presence, too, bringing a selection of the finest drum gear we have in stock at PMT Manchester, plus offering some great deals and expert advice from our drum & percussion specialists.
