Drumtek Australia and Drumscene Magazine are proud to announce the exclusive and first Australian Tour of the Steve Gadd Band Featuring Michael Landau/guitar, Jimmy Johnson/bass, Kevin Hays/keys and Walt Fowler/trumpet and flugelhorn.

Steve Gadd will be here in December, and fans all over the country will be in a state of high anticipation for seeing the most famous drummer alive, in person! Steve Gadd is a man that truly needs no introduction – particularly within the drumming community and ultimately with musicians all over the world who recognise his genius and immense contribution to music history.

Steve turned 70 last year, and there is no sign of any intention to slow down or retire. He continues to tour extensively with James Taylor and is still first call for Eric Clapton and Paul Simon when available. More recently Steve has been writing and touring with his own STEVE GADD BAND. Featuring the familiar talents of Michael Landau-guitar, Jimmy Johnson-bass, Walt Fowler-flugelhorn and Kevin Hays-keyboards – The Steve Gadd Band has enjoyed great success – both recording and touring their own material as well as just allowing audiences the opportunity to see one of the best line–ups you will ever witness live in concert!

Frank Corniola, Managing Director and owner of Drumtek and DRUMscene, talks about the opportunity to tour the Steve Gadd Band;
“Being a lifelong fan and, like many of my peers, having grown up with the influence of Steve Gadd, it’s been a dream of mine to work with Steve. Now with the opportunity to bring this drumming legend to Australia to perform in a context that his Australian fans have never seen him – with his own band performing many of their own compositions – this is just a rare and incredible once in a lifetime experience that will be enjoyed by drummers and musicians from all around the country.”
