The Ultimate Drummers Weekend 10
Aug 24 2016
The Ultimate Drummers Weekend is the largest drum festival held in Australia. TUDW celebrated its 10th anniversary with an all-star roster featuring the Dave Weckl Band, John Tempesta, Dom Famularo, and a host of international drummers including hometown favorite Virgil Donati.
Recording quality, festival footage and user options, though not quite up to current hi-tech standards, are nonetheless adequate. The Dave Weckl and Virgil Donati workshops are the most entertaining and educational here. The 11th-anniversary disc closely follows the format of the 10th-anniversary show, featuring a slew of international players, many from Australia. Headlining artists included Thomas Lang, John Blackwell Jr. and Jimmy DiGrasso. If you’re interested in digging deeper into the talents of the international drumming community, then you’ll find these DVDs a worthwhile purchase.
This is for drummers and percussionists alike. It would really be hard not to enjoy this if you have ever sat behind a set and there are many familiar names to drummers whom know drummers. Never want to say the best – there are not best drummers – but all presented here could be given 10/10s for their performances and their unique style.
