Modern Drummer Festival 2005 DVD
The world's most prestigious drum festival not only relocated to a state-of-the-art facility this year, but the weekend was captured on video by producers Paul Siegel and Rob Wallis of Hudson Music.
Let's check it out.
Disc One - Saturday
Jason Bittner: The drummer with Shadows Fall was voted as the best metal drummer in the 2005 MD Readers Poll. Metal fans will love his performance.
Rodney Holmes: The drummer with The Steve Kimock Band demonstrated chops and creativity to spare. His performance was one of the most impressive at this year's fest.
Keith Carlock: Formerly with Sting, Steely Dan, and numerous others, he appears on this DVD with fusion guitarist Wayne Krantz and bassist Time Lefebvre.
Chad Smith and Ian Paice: These two classic drummers teamed up for a fun filled festival performance.
Disc Two - Sunday
Chris Adler: Drummer with Lamb of God, Chris performs with his brother Willie Adler, who is also the Lamb of God guitarist.
JoJo Mayer & Nerve: First performing at the 1998 MD Fest, JoJo is back with his incredible chops and his band, Nerve.
Zoro: Four-time winner of #1 R&B Drummer title in the MD Readers Poll, Zoro's performance not only displayed his in-depth groove-ability but his chops as well.
Latin All Stars Featuring Sheila E, Alex Acuña, Raul Rekow, and Karl Perazzo gave an impressive improvisational performance as they worked off each other's rhythmic patterns.
Roy Haynes: This drumming legend has played with all of the greats for over six decades. At 80 years of age, his excitement and energy behind the kit continues to defy the laws of aging!
This disk contains backstage interviews, demonstrations, practice routines, and commentaries by Jason Bittner, Rodney Holmes, Keith Carlock, Chad Smith and Ian Paice, Chirs Adler, Jojo Mayer, Zoro, Walfredo Reyes Sr, and Jon Willis.
Also included are artist setups, Web links and photos.
