Palace Drum Clinic

The PDCommunity is our new feature, bringing all types of musicians together and the first one in this series is with Trio of Boom on 14th November

We are reaching out to all drummers, guitarists and keyboard players to come and join in this unique workshop. 🥁🎸🎹

First there will be a performance by the internationally acclaimed funk/world/
jazz trio, Trio of Boom, then you’ll have the opportunity to do a workshop with the individual artists on their own instrument.

All you’ll need is to bring your guitar, sticks or note pad (if you’re a keys player) and soak up new/different ideas and concepts for your own musical journey.

Make sure you book your place as this is an event that will certainly open up your creativity.

We are back! We are kicking off the PDClinics with Dave Phillips

For more than a decade, David Phillips has been the photographer whose unique style and classic shots of drummers have produced some incredible, iconic images of these amazing artists.

A Drummer’s Perspective is all about drummers playing live and features photos taken at some of the most amazing rock concerts and festivals. From stadiums to arenas, and drum festivals to clubs, the photos in this book get up close to the action and will give you a unique perspective and inside view on drummers and their world.

He has self published two books, A Drummer’s Perspective (2010) and From The Riser: A Drummers Perspective II (2016) and his images have been used in magazines worldwide.

These will be available to purchase on the evening.
