"This is a really solid group. Daniel Glass and Johnny Rabb have done clinics here in the past; their show appearances and clinic highlight youtube videos both produced incredible responses. Cora Coleman-Dunham, a former GC Drum-Off winner, drums for Prince. Her husband Josh plays bass for Prince, and together Josh and Cora have built a business that does voiceover work, publishing, and other creative services including a mentorship program.
Bryan Hitt (REO Speedwagon) is a hard-hitting rocker with a fresh presentation. Clayton Cameron, probably best known for his work with Tony Bennett, has earned the title of Brush Master, and in addition to his clinic will lead a Brush Circle. First-call L.A. session master J.R. Robinson will anchor the clinic program."
Master Classes will be presented by Jane Boxall, Clayton Cameron, Daniel Glass, and Cora Dunham. The Master Classes by Clayton, Daniel, and Cora will be extensions of their clinics. Class sizes are limited to 25 so everyone gets some personal attention. Jane Boxall’s Master Class will cover ragtime playing styles, improvisation, and mallet instrument restoration.
Building on the model established by Bart Eliott’s 'Drummer Cafe' at the 20th Anniversary show in 2010, George Lawrence of NotSoModernDrummer plans to present interviews, informative video presentations, and a special presentation by Jane Boxall who will be performing ragtime numbers on period-correct vintage instruments.
The 2011 Chicago Drum Show will build on the charity connection established in 2010 with exhibitor Nancy Laughery, massage therapist, donating proceeds to Imerman’s Angels, a Chicago-based organization that matches up cancer survivors with newly diagnosed patients for one-on-one support. Triple Threat Mentoring will also have an exhibit space. Triple Threat is a nonprofit based in Aurora, Illinois centered on empowering and benefitting disadvantaged urban youth.
Show organizer Rob Cook reports that exhibitors have signed up at a record-setting pace. "At this point in time, there’s little doubt we will once again have a sellout."
