It is that time of year again, where you have to decide on spending a week with some of the best drummers on the planet. This year's edition of Thomas Lang's Big Drum Bonanza has guest artists Simon Phillips, Terry Bozzio and Luke Holland. That should make the decision whether to go or not a no-brainer.
The 2019-edition of the world's first-ever artist-hosted drumming intensive boot camp takes place at the Palm Garden Hotel in Thousand Oaks, California.
From 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM you are kept busy with lessons from the masters. Each day at the Big Drum Bonanza features a different guest instructor who will lead the group in a unique, hands-on teaching session.
