Everyone Had a Great Time and Won Lots of Valuable Prizes
PLUS Great Once-in-a- lifetime Deals on the World’s Greatest Drum Gear
Everyone enjoyed a full day of fun and exciting and educational performances from some of the world’s greatest drummers!
I would like to thank all of you who attended the event, which was in memory of my Dad who finally gave in to dreaded Parkinson’s Disease. All proceeds from this event went to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Here’s the inside story on how the event cam about from the Daily Record Newspaper:
World Renowned Session Drummer, Producer, and Educator Billy Ward has worked with Jim Beard, Bill Evans Supergroup, Leni Stern, George Russell and Living Time Orchestra, The Knack, Jimmy Webb, Carly Simon, Richard Marx, ex-KISS star Ace Frehley’s Comet, Bill Champlin, Robbie Robertson, Yoko Ono, Chris Whitley, Joan Osborne and many others. At Tiger Bill’s DrumBeat Fest 2007 he shares his vast knowledge and experience with you!
Chet Doboe and his Hip Pickles earned the title of the World’s Most Exciting Drum Band and although they appeared in full force at the live version of TigerBill’s DrumBeat Fest 2007, their great performance is not available for online download due to copyright issues.
Showman extraordinaire and Stick Trick Specialist Chip Ritter, who has performed his unbelievable feats on the David Letterman Show and around the globe, teaches some of his best tricks of the trade!
Mallet Expert, James Walker, plays his original jazz compositions and demonstrates the many benefits of learning mallet instruments for the drumset player! Also featured is an incredible duet with Billy Ward! (This duet was totally improvised on the spot and never rehearsed!)
