SYDNEY DRUM & PERCUSSION SHOW: SUNDAY

2gang1

Day 2 of the Sydney Drum & Percussion Show was as lively and inspiring as the opening day. Sydney turned on another gorgeous sunny day which brought the kids out in large numbers. It was all about the next generation today as numerous hands on workshops were presented and enthusiastically attended. DrumFill, Dynasty Drumline, Bek Wermut and Alex West, plus Taikoz all got the audience involved. Inside there was much knowledge and wisdom to be gained with some great sessions by Dave Goodman, Stan Bicknell, Optimum Percussion and Pete Drummond. Pete had the additional pressure of performing in front of yesterday’s headliners, Thomas Lang and Virgil Donati, who came back to visit again. On the main stage Lozz Benson’s band That Redhead put in a fantastic rockabilly performance. Next up Taikoz performed an exhilarating set of exotic percussion. Michael Schack returned to the main stage to take up where he left off yesterday, leaving the audience spellbound with his energy and commitment. Buddy Siolo and his Gang of Brothers then closed the show with their brand of quality funk of soul. On the trade floor, the house was full of drums and all of them were being played .. all at once! By 5pm folks were all drummed out but glad they came, saw, conquered, banged, and beat their way through a great weekend.
