REGINA DRUM FESTIVAL 2016 – THE BEAT GOES ON

The 2016 REGINA DRUM FESTIVAL is very excited to celebrate year 5 as a world class, international drum event . As the first four years and the 2015 EDUCATION SERIES have proven, REGINA is on the global music map as a definite place for music and drumming inspiration and motivation.

As with past years, the 2016 line up extends to players from across the WORLD and a variety of musical styles and backgrounds.

First off from London, England, we have the legendary DAVE MATTACKS ( Paul McCartney, Elton John, Jimmy Page, Fairport Convention) talking about what it takes to work with legendary artists and what they need from a drummer. We are also very excited to have the one and only CHRIS COLEMAN ( Prince, Chaka Khan, Israel and The New Breed) from Los Angeles, California. Chris will be talking about what it takes to stay busy in the music industry in 2016 and how to work with many top artists.

Also from Winnipeg, Manitoba we have metal giant AARON EDGAR ( Third Ion, Drumeo, Modern Drummer Magazine). Aaron will educate on releasing yourself to be the most creative player you can be as well as many current metal drumming techniques. Rounding out the event is Regina’s own JAYSON BRINKWORTH ( Aaron Pritchett, Studio, Modern Drummer Education Team). Jayson will be performing with JJ Voss ( guitar, vocals) and Brian Kelly ( bass guitar and vocals). He will discuss the importance of dynamics, listening and overall communication and trust when playing with other musicians.

We are also very excited to have AWARD winning and LEGENDARY drum builder RONN DUNNETT on hand to talk about DUNNETT CLASSIC DRUMS and the GEORGE WAY drum company.

Along with the festival education events, there will also be a TRADESHOW happening on the CLUB side. You can visit booths from Long and McQuade Music, SaskMusic, EPEK Drums, Stickman Drum Experience and more.

This is so much more than just a drumming event, it is a chance for music fans to get a glimpse into music history, hear amazing stories, enjoy some great performances and more.
