Attention Students and fellow Drummers!!

June 8, 2015, at the MIM (Musical Instrument Museum), Steve Smith with Vital Information will be in concert. The former drummer of Journey, named “one of the top 25 drummers of all time” by Modern Drummer magazine, brings the NYC version of his celebrated jazz fusion band to MIM Music Theater.

I’ve already ordered my tickets. I am encouraging you to not miss this. Steve is a very skilled drummer and is worth seeing live! Contact me with any questions. The links to buy tickets are below. I look forward to seeing you there.

SteveSmith Live

In a musical world where keeping a working band has proven difficult for many bandleaders, drummer/bandleader Steve Smith has managed to keep three bands working for the past three decades. His jazz-rock band, Steve Smith and Vital Information, has been touring and recording for more than thirty years, while his “straight-ahead” groups Steve Smith and Buddy’s Buddies, made up of Buddy Rich Alumni (with three album releases), and Steve Smith’s Jazz Legacy (a group dedicated to playing the music of some of great drum set masters such as Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, and Tony Williams), have toured for five years and released two albums and a DVD.


MIM proudlSteveSmith3y presents the Steve Smith Master Class. Smith is not only a world-class drummer but also a first-rate teacher. He will share his philosophy of musicianship, using a cycle of Study, Practice, and Performance, and his ideas on how to develop efficient hand-and-foot techniques for playing the drum set. Smith will also discuss and demonstrate his approach to playing odd times, referencing his woodshed master class in the article “Drumming in Odd Time Signatures” (DownBeat magazine, November 2013), which includes his concepts for integrating rhythms from India into his drum-set approach. Smith will play a variety of solo pieces and will be open to answering questions from the audience and addressing any drumming-related topic. Be sure to bring a notepad, pencils, drumsticks, and rubber practice pads.
