MICHAEL SCHACK IS PUMPED FOR SD&P SHOW

Posted in Sydney Drum Show News    //    Post Date - March 30, 2017

Belgian drummer Michael Schack tells us he is keen to get to Australia for the Sydney Drum & Percussion Show May 27 & 28 Rosehill Gardens

You might already have seen drummer/producer Michael Schack performing on big festival stages, in clubs or concert venues in Australia and New Zealand as the energetic E drummer with Netsky Live, as a solo performing drummer/V-Drums product artist at music events worldwide or maybe you recognise him from one of his numerous performance clips on YouTube, both solo and with SquarElectric. Thanks to his growing fanbase and an increasing buzz on social media, Michael is also making his name as a unique and in demand solo #djdrummer, even far outside of his native Belgium.

Indeed, Michael Schack is not your regular “drummer who plays on top of a backing track”: in his world, the drummer is a one-man-band, with Michael playing a fully live triggered, inspiring and interactive multi-genre repertoire on which the audience can truly rave and enjoy some spectacular drumming. Helped by the very latest developments in e-drumming technology, Michael’s drum sound is all about a true #livebeatsrule impact. Over the years, Michael has won several awards, has been nominated for “best clinician/ demonstrator” in international drummer magazine #polls and just recently (Feb 2017) received the #E-drummerOfTheYear award for the third time. He’s also an affiliate instructor on drumeo.com and contributes to the development of Roland’s V-Drums and E-pads since the early 2000’s. He is worldwide seen as one of the main artist faces of Roland’s SPD-SX and the recently launched V-Drums flagship, the #TD-50. He also produces sample packs, one of which is the successful “Hybrid Beats Session” pack, released through Hospital Records  Loopmasters.

ThomasVirgilcombo

Thomas Lang & Virgil Donati  to headline the Sydney Drum & Percussion Show. Australian Musician and D’Addario Australia are thrilled to bring you two of the biggest names in the drumming world!

Thomas Lang has headlined almost every major international drum festival in the world and has toured the globe many times as a solo artist. As a session musician he played for artists such as Robert Fripp, Peter Gabriel, Asia, Nik Kershaw, Tina Turner, Robbie Williams, Kelly Clarkson, Ronan Keating, and George Michael to name just a few. However, this will mark the first time he’s performed a dual performance with arguably our country’s most successful drumming export EVER … Virgil Donati.

Since the mid-nineties Virgil Donati has been a household name, performing and touring with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, Steve Vai and Allan Holdsworth, while also maintaining a busy schedule as a band leader and member of numerous recording and touring bands. Both are incredible solo artists, educators, composers, writers and producers in their own right and are inarguably two of the most versatile drumming virtuosos in the world.

We are incredibly proud and excited to bring them together for the first time in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see them on the same stage at the same time.
IT DOESN’T GET BIGGER THAN THIS!

Sydney Drum & Percussion Show tickets are due for release early April.
