A quick note from Brian
Hey guys,

The percussion camp is starting to develop nicely. I am currently trying to lock down some more guest artists for the camp week, and gather some corporate support from my sponsors (Pearl, Sabian, Remo, Vic Firth). Hopefully everyone is signing up as soon as possible because spots are limited! If you are signed up and have some questions for me about the camp, please email me at I am very excited to get a chance to work with everyone, keep drumming over the summer, and we will see you on July 26th!!!!!
