FARMINGDALE, NY, May 12, 2009 – On May 5-7, 2009, Sveti band leader and Drummers Collective professor Marko Djordjevic performed three clinics for Fork’s Drum Closet Knoxville, TN, Ken Stanton Music Stone Mountain, GA, and Ken Stanton Music Marietta, GA.
All three clinics had excellent attendance and great question and answer sessions. Marko’s unearthly grasp on Eastern European folk rhythms mixed with modern jazz, funk, and rock had jaws on the floor and people moving from their seats to see what his hands and feet were doing. The clinics were also coupled with Evans snare drum tune up night hosted by Evans product specialist Josh Touchton. Josh talked about this importance of changing heads and snare wires for optimal tone and the crucial skill of tuning your drums to find individual sound.
The clinics were sponsored by Evans Drumheads, Puresound Snare Wires, Mapex Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Vic Firth drumsticks, and Alfred publishing.
