On August 13, the San Jose Repertory Theatre will host three of the world’s most exciting drummers for an evening of mind-blowing drum clinics and performances. Extreme drumming sensation Marco Minnemann, Tower Of Power funk master David Garibaldi, and former Mars Volta wunderkind Thomas Pridgen will perform as a benefit for Little Feat sticksman Richie Hayward.
All profits generated from the Drum! Magazine Rhythm Night will be donated to Richie. In 2009, he announced that he had contracted severe liver disease. Since then Richie has battled the condition without the benefit of health insurance.
The event is organized by Drum! Magazine and co-sponsored by DW, Evans, Remo, Sabian, Vic Firth, Yamaha and Zildjian.
