Are you a fan of the drums? Do you like the way that the percussive thunder makes your heart beat faster and harder when it is delivered with excellence? You do eh? Fantastic because I have a show report to share with you that does just that. Tonight would be a show called “Drum Wars” and this was going to pit the Brothers Appice (Carmine and Vinny) against one another for the title of “Worlds Greatest Drummer”. The guys would be duking it out with their respective sets and also be joined by a group of talented musicians to deliver some other music. The show would be held at B.B. King’s and you can read the entire report and see the photos by clicking the logo below. Then please scroll down a little further to see some of the other images I captured at the gig.
Great to see these drumming giants name up in lights on the marquee. Of course in this particular case I think I would have added “Drum Wars” to spark the curiosity of passerby.
You’ve seen me post images of the show posters in the recent past so I am going to keep doing that.
There was not a lot of merchandise on sale this evening. Only this shirt. It was still cool though. I probably should have bought one but didn’t manage to.
Here’s a shot from farther back in the venue so you could see both full drum kits before the full of the audience were sitting at their tables. I guess this made sense as a seated show. Let’s you tap on the table in unison with Carmine and Vinny when it came down to it.
As I note in my full on concert report this was a fun event but surely one that was geared towards a particular crowd.
