Clinic Lineup for May 13-June 15

By Radim McCue Published May 13, 2010 Sorry, North America. John Tempesta's on a big clinic tour, but only in Asia.

It's a hot month for clinics and also for festivals starting this weekend with the annual Chicago Drum Show featuring Bun E. Carlos, Denny Seiwell, Joe Morello, Hannah Ford, Greg Potter, and Danny Seraphine, and continuing next week with the Modern Drummer Festival. Then it gets kicked up another notch the following week with the Cape Breton Drum Festival.
