Danny Carey Drum Clinic 09-19-09 Review

To celebrate their 25th anniversary in business, Explorers Percussion of Kansas City, Missouri presented a once in a lifetime drum event on Saturday September 19th.

A long-time loyal SONOR dealer, Explorer's owner Wes Faulconer brought together influential SONOR artist Danny Carey of Tool, along with the creative genius of Terry Bozzio and tabla master Aloke Dutta.

This was a highly anticipated event and it drew attendance from across the US, as well as internationally.

Danny Carey played on one of his own SONOR Designer Series kits to a full house of excited attendees, offering an amazing and brilliant performance. He offered insight to his personal style, and covered topics from independence, odd times, and dbl bass drumming and gave the crowd examples drumming to Tool's music.

He also exhibited some incredibly powerful drum solo work throughout his performance.

Aloke Dutta opened the minds of the drummers there giving a premier tabla presentation, while drum virtuoso Terry Bozzio exhibited his highly innovative drum compositions on the kit as well. The day ended with an electric combination of drumming from all three that received a standing ovation.

SONOR would like to congratulate Wes and his team at Explorers for their 25th anniversary, and for their continued support of SONOR drums!

Many thanks from SONOR to Paul Collier wrapping up the review and supplying the pictures!
