Philly Drum Project is excited to partner with Philadelphia's brand new DRUM SHOP, Philadelphia Drum & Percussion. Come join us at their Grand Opening Event this Friday. We'll be there from 7-9pm for the return of Beats, Brews, & Banter.
Beats, Brews, & Banter is a free event that gives local drummers, musicians, and wannabes a chance to network, share ideas, and learn from some of the best drummers in the area. Our guest this time is The War on Drugs' own explosive rhythm machine, Charlie Hall!
Here's what Dave Hartley had to say about Charlie: "Charlie Hall never took lessons and doesn't spend much of his limited time off from touring with The War on Drugs practicing rudiments or increasing his limb independence - that's because things like "spirit" and "musicality" can't be learned from a youtube clip or a Hal Leonard book. More than any other instrument, drums expose the personality of the player. Ultra-busy drummers are usually motormouths, light hitters are usually quiet or passive and bashers are usually alpha dogs. As both a human and a drummer, Charlie is a master conversationalist. Lots of drummers will tell you that listening is as important as playing and that what you don't play is more important than what you do - but few can truly implement it as well as Charlie Hall has in his career with Tommy Guerrero, Jet Black Crayon, Windsor for the Derby, Jens Lekman and now The War on Drugs."
Philly Drum Project is a Percussive Collective, founded in 2011, dedicated to making drumming more accessible in the Philadelphia area by helping those in our region share lessons, beats, and gear in an environment where community, creativity, education, and diversity are valued. Beats, Brews, & Banter is held every month and has featured such drummers as Eric Slick (Dr. Dog), Spanky McCurdy (Jill Scott, Lady Gaga), David Uosikkinen (The Hooters), and Fred Berman (Amos Lee).
