Steve White Live at Remo Drummer Night 2017 British drum legend plays The Style Council Steve White Live at Remo Drummer Night 2017 - British drum legend plays The Style Council Steve White's performance at the Remo Drummer Night 2017 took us back to 1984 when he played his own original My Ever Changing Moods from The Style Council's début album 'Café Bleu'. The song, and fifth single from the album, reached #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and you can hear Steve on the original recordings of this song. Gladly, on this Remo evening he played it once again with the Remo Drummer Night band.

Steve White really doesn't need a lot of introduction. In his bio on his artist page you can read all about Steve and his career. Suffice it to say that it is always a specialty to watch an original drummer play one of his hits again.

While Steve, on My Ever Changing Moods, plays the perfect drums for a pop song, the B-Side of the single was the Hammond instrumental Mick's Company, on which you can hear Steve rock a pretty bit more. We added both songs from Spotify below the video.

Steve White during Remo Drummer Night 2008Fun detail
Steve White also performed at the Remo Drummer Night in 2008. That evening took place during the weekend of Drummer Live! - a Drummer Magazine event at the ExCel Docks in London. Back then, he was already playing Zildjian cymbals and Remo drumheads but his 2008-kit was Premier. Now Steve plays Yamaha drums.

Remo Drummer Night
During the 2017 Remo Drummer Night on the Saturday of The UK Drum Show, 17 drummers played a different song with an All Star band put together by Karl Brazil who actually couldn't attend himself because he was in Boston in the USA playing with James Blunt.

Remo Drummer Night 2017 took place during The UK Drum show on Saturday September 23, 2017 in Manchester. Just like the Remo Drummer Night in 2008, the concert was organized to support the Teenage Cancer Trust.
