The Drumming All-Stars

 The Drumming All Stars are back in Chicago and ONLY at Martyrs’ for these ALL AGES shows!  Concert 1: August 10- Drumming legend Billy Cobham brings his eclectic fusion style (and a massive drumset) to Martyrs’! Billy is best known for his groundbreaking work in Mahavishnu Orchestra. He has also recorded/performed with George Duke, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and countless others!  Todd Sucherman joins us from the summer Styx tour. Originally from Chicago, Todd has recorded/toured with Brian Wilson, Peter Cetera, Fareed Haque, Eric Marienthal, Rick Braun, and a variety of others. His Methods and Mechanics DVDs for drummers have been best sellers for the past decade. /// Concert 2: August 14- Best known for his work with international sensation Snarky Puppy, Robert “Sput” Searight is an amazing cutting edge drummer, composer and producer!  Matt Garstka is the backbone of the progressive rock powerhouse Animals As Leaders. His powerful next generation progressive rock style has earned him numerous accolades in all major drumming publications. /// At both shows, the drummers will play a variety of tunes with an all-star band featuring bassist James Genus (Herbie Hancock/Saturday Night Live), guitarist Vinny Valentino (George Benson/Vital Information), singer Chrissi Poland (Dave Weckl/Moby), and Chicago natives - keyboardists Stu Mindeman and Paul Mutzabaugh!  You can expect a grand finale with both drummers at the end of both of these shows!
