Drummerszone now has officially 12,000 releases on our website. Every release, whether it is an album, a book, a dvd or drum method, or even an app, it is linked to at least one of the drummers or percussionists in our database. And of course, the music act if possible, because there are many drummer-solo albums out there as well.
Going through this article, you will notice a lot of mentions of Vinnie Colaiuta. That is because we often update and add releases to artists. Everytime we do this, a complete new musical realm opens up of seemingly unrelated artists but are all playing on one single release.
For instance, on the 2019 album 'Eleven' from Mike Stern and Jeff Lorber, you see an amazing line-up of Vinnie Colaiuta, Gary Novak and Dave Weckl on the same album. As a drummer, you just have to hear this! And that is why we add them to our database, so you can find them.
Did you say App? Yes! There are quite a few artist that have Drum Apps. Pete Lockett, for instance, has his DrumJam App for percussion and The Voice-drummer Hans Eijkenaar has one with Steve Gadd! Check them out!
