We're pleased to announce West Coast Drum Shop's first drum clinic with NY jazz drumming great, Dan Weiss. Dan has been hailed as one of the top five jazz drummers by The New York Times and his large ensemble recording “Fourteen” made their top ten list of the best records of 2014. Weiss’s innovative drumming and forward thinking compositions have been pushing musical limits for decades.
Weiss's intense study of jazz, classical Indian, contemporary classical, West African, and metal sets a musical platform that creates a sound that transcends conventional style or genre. His compositional trademarks are angular yet emotive melodies; long rhythmic cycles native to many non-western music, complex through-composed drum parts, and melodic shapes drawing directly from the raga system found in Indian classical music.
Tickets available online, in-person at the shop or call 425-502-7029. Meet at the shop 15 minutes prior to the event to check in
