Cobus Potgieter, the South African kid with the unpronounceable name and killer Youtube videos, is coming to the US and Canada for a brief tour in 2011. Cobus will touch down in Anaheim, California January 13-16 where he'll be checking out the gear and signing autographs at the DRUM! and TRX cymbal booths. Then he's off to performances in Los Angeles, San Jose (with DRUM! Music Editor Wally Schnalle), and Toronto. His complete schedule is as follows:
February 12, 2011
Toronto, Ontario (Burlington)
(Time and location to be announced)
Potgieter' presentations will include performances of several of his popular drum covers as well as a discussion of his technical and musical approach to drumming and creating drum videos. Audience members will also be invited to participate in the Q&A segment to learn about the South African drummer’s experiences that have yielded over 55 million views of his online videos and led to his selection as the Number One Rising Star in Drum! Magazine’s 2010 Drummies! Readers Poll.
