IMC,Disneyland and Nashville

July 24, 2008

I returned as the Jazz Drum Instructor at the International Music Camp again…and it was a great week. This year’s students really stepped it up and performed so well that I just had to sit back and smile. I hope to return for many summers at IMC and continue to develop the Jazz Drum Set Program.

I taught my Groove Boot Camp Program again at IMC, and it was a great experience for all who attended. My companion CD to that program is now available too….so get yours now! lol

I played two nights at Disneyland with Rumble King on the Tomorrowland Terrace stage. It is a lot of fun for me to return to Disneyland where I performed in the All American College Band years ago…and decided to move to LA…the rest is history…or something like that.

I am headed to Nashville TN to record with Producer Travis Howard. He has had some very good success as a songwriter for Miranda Lambert, and now he is running the whole show. I am very excited about making music with Travis.

What People Are Saying About Sammy...

"First rate musicianship, teaching, and groove! Sammy came in Swinging from the first downbeat! He was equally comfortable driving the big band, interacting with the faculty combo, or coaching the Drum students. He connected with everyone at the gigs and at the camp. His infectious personality, energy, and tireless groove have earned him an open-ended invitation back whenever he can make it. One of the most versatile and musical drummers out there! A true pro's pro! Dr. Scott Belck - Director of Jazz Studies-Cincinatti Conservatory of Music-Associate Professor www.scottbelck.com
