Thanks Craig, International Ambassador & Clinician…
Thanks Premier Drums
Another success played out to a full house here at Drum Shop UK. The place was crammed and all had come to learn from one of the country’s leading drum clinicians. Craig was accompanied by Craig Buckley (Premier). As usual we put on snacks and drink for all that turned up for the event.
The evening kicked off with a Charlie Vasiliou from Darlington who only recently got into the top five drummers at Mike Dolbears Young Drummer of the Year. Charlie gave us a run through of a couple of songs accompanied with backing tracks playing on a Premier XPK drum kit. A great performance from Charlie as he was applauded by all. Well done Charlie, we’re sure it won’t be long before you are back with us here at Drum Shop UK giving us your own drum clinic.
After the break the star of the show, Craig Blundell took to the floor by firstly warming up to some of his fusion music on his Premier Elite Gen X in Green Sparkle Fade drum kit. Once warmed up, Craig then began with his amazing clinic. He showed us all how to play with diagrams making it much easier for us all to understand. Craig then informed us about his lessons that are been put together on YouTube
(click on the link to view). The whole time for the clinic was about two hours where Craig kept us all entertained with demonstrations and interaction with us watching. A few actually got up to play with Craig which was awesome. At the end of the evening Craig spent a lot of time answering as many questions thrown at him he then played a 15 minute compilation many songs we all knew. Craig being the true gentleman that he his then spent time to sign posters and cd’s for all who wanted.
An amazing night for all. Keep your ears and eyes open for the next time Craig is around, he is a must see for any drummer young or old..
Once again a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Craig and all at Premier for providing us with such an amazing night.
Cheers, and thanks for reading.
