New artists confirmed for London Drum Show
Mike Johnston and Harvey Mason to perform on main stage
There's still plenty of time until the next installment of the London Drum Show on 21 and 22 November and the organization has already confirmed some of the biggest names in the world of drumming including Anika Nilles and Peter Erskine. The latest additions to the roster are Mike Johnston and Harvey Mason Sr. They will be both on the main stage and in the new education zone.
About Mike Johnston
Mike Johnston picked up the sticks at the age of five, honed his skills with the likes of Pete Magadini, Steve Ferrone and Will Kennedy, and now operates the world's largest educational website for drummers, mikelessons.com.
Mike offers live online drum lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced players, plus individual downloadable lessons, all filmed in his home. After the site gained success, Mike Johnston expanded the business to the Mikes Lessons facility in Folsom, California and began to offer international week-long drum camps.
About Harvey Mason Sr.
Drummer, writer, composer and producer, Harvey Mason Sr. has worked with everyone from Barbara Streisand to the London Symphony Orchestra, John Legend to James Brown. His precision time keeping and versatility have placed him amongst the most in-demand and most recorded session drummers of all time.
In the realms of '70s & '80s funk-jazz fusion "The Mase" was king. This lead to the founding of the contemporary jazz 'super group' Fourplay and a seat atop the Billboard's Contemporary Jazz chart for thirty-four weeks, a platinum album, three gold discs and ten Grammy nominations.
With a string of new exhibitors joining in, it's certainly shaping up to be the biggest London Drum Show to date. Have a look at all brands that are already confirmed
