Stump and Mrs. Stump will be there! Gonna do a NY tour that week starting with DRT. Keep in mind folks...there will be some nice kits and equipment there to play. Plan accordingly and don't put too much emphasis on bringing your kits. We all love our kits, but getting them there is alot of work! Bong...can I get a witness? :wink: Hope to see you all there. P.O.Y!

Ok, I need to start gathering some information. Real simple.....
-Who is GOING to make it.
-Who will most likely make it.
-Who wants to bring a kit. (This does not apply to snares, as everyone is encouraged to bring one for drum-offs, snare comps., etc.) We still may have to put a limit on kits, so first dibs apply. Also be realistic, if you have an entry level kit with nothing spectacular....... well you get the point.
-And for the matter of lodging, who will be looking for rooms, and how many nights.

Feel free to respond here, or PM me if you prefer.

Please do remember, unless you attended last year, there will be a fee. More than likely it will be a daily charge with an option of a package deal for the whole weekend. The price tag is as of yet unknown. It will depend on all of our costs behind the lines.

For some of you newbies who may not be up to speed, feel free to browse this thread from start to finish! :lol:

ZORO:
Zoro is one of the top educators in the world and was voted #1 R&B Drummer & Clinician in the Modern Drummer Magazine reader's poll for several years consecutively, and has received Best Funk Drummer honors in Drum! and Rhythm Magazine of the U.K. His book and DVD, The Commandments of R&B Drumming were all awarded with the prestigious #1 Best Educational Products title in the Modern Drummer Magazine reader's poll. Zoro's most recent and riveting drum performance can be seen on the DVD entitled, Modern Drummer Festival 2005 (Hudson Music).

Johhny Rabb:
Johnny Rabb is an active live and studio drummer living in Nashville, TN. He stays busy drumming and composing music with partner Clay Parnell in the innovative group BioDiesel.

He has performed with a wide range of artists such as Maynard Ferguson, Alain Caron, Frank Gambale, Larry Tagg, Tanya Tucker, DJ Hype, Hank Williams III, SheDaisy, Deana Carter and Mindy McCready. He has traveled worldwide conducting clinics and master classes including the Montreal Drumfest, PASIC, Musik Messe, Meinl Drum Festival 2005 & 2008.

Rod Morgenstein:
Rod's professional music career began as a founding member of the groundbreaking group the Dixie Dregs when, as a student at the University of Miami in Florida, he met Steve Morse, Andy West and Allen Sloan. The university was a hotbed of musical activity during this period, playing host to brilliant future talents like Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, Danny Gottlieb, T Lavitz and Bruce Hornsby. Playing under the official Studio Music and Jazz curriculum title of Rock Ensemble II, the Dregs honed their fusionesque chops. It was here that the band recorded its classic Great Spectacular album now available on CD.

Rick Van Horn:
Rick Van Horn has had a long and fruitful career as a drummer and educator as well as being formerly associated with Modern Drummer Magazine for several decades as an editor, writer and product reviewer. His long tenure as a professional player makes him uniquely qualified to present his clinc on drum set ergonomics and a logical holistic approach to the instrument.

Where the hell are all of you guys that said you wanted to go? Look, here is what I am willing to do. For those of you interested in going at a DISCOUNTED rate, contact me directly. I will get you tickets at MY cost. Do not attempt to get tickets any other way(unless you want to pay full cost). This deal is supposed to be for UGW guys ONLY!
BUT, I like you guys enough to get my ass in trouble with Mike in order for you to be there.

Contact me by PM, and I can also send you my phone number if you would like to speak to me personally.
I'm all set up with everything to get you a BIG discount! Don't miss this chance!!!!!

Here are some more announcements from Zen..........

"This just in:

The Dream Cymbal Tasting Tour is coming to DRT 2009. There will be literally HUNDREDS of Dream Cymbals in ALL the series on display and for sale at DRT 2009.

In Addition to that, you will be able to trade in broken B-20 Bronze Cymbals towards the discounted price during this event as well!

This is a GREAT opportunity to try some GREAT cymbals and go home with them on the cheap!"


"I went to the cymbal tasting at Cadence Music yesterday and the Contact Series are pretty darned exceptional for the money and everybody already knows how I feel about Chinese K replacements... The Bliss Series is pretty special and you just can't beat the prices!

On TOP of that, the good folks at Dream Cymbals are going to GIVE AWAY a core set of cymbals as a door prize... that's a 16" Crash, a 20" Ride , a pair of 14" hats AND a nice case... FOR NOTHING! You just have to be LUCKY!"



"And tonight I booked a band to play AFTER Rod Morgenstein that we'll be able to play with... Details on that next week... this will be a blast!"

I'm already counting on you bringing it Paul!
But be sure to bring a rug. No kits will be set up without one.

Why does it seem that everyone shows interest in this all year long, then when the time comes.......*crickets* :roll:
