Dennis Tufano-CCM-Dr Belck

March 18, 2011

I am just back from a whirlwind road trip that included some great music making.  It started with Dennis Tufano in Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.  Dennis was his usual talented and classy self, and Mike Acosta did his usual brilliant job leading the band.  I then went to the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to do a Drum Masterclass.  It was great to meet with young, motivated Musicians and share music and information.  Thank you to Remo, Zildjian and Yamaha for all the support you gave me for this event and for all you do all year long.

Dr Scott Belck had his CD release party for “At The Cannibal’s Prayer Breakfast” at the legendary Blue Whisp Jazz Club in Cincinnati Ohio.  We performed most of the CD compositions to a very packed club, and it was fun to revisit the music that I recorded with Scott.  I am very proud of how the CD turned out, and how it sounded live as well.

So far, 2011 has really been amazing…..and it is just getting started!

What People Are Saying About Sammy...

"Sammy K is a terrific Educator and Musician who can swing a big band like nobody's business, and then easily turn around and instill confidence in a group of inexperienced young Drummers who previously exhibited doubt and frustration. Sammy is a prime example of someone for whom dedication, perseverance and hard work has paid great dividends not only for himself but for all associated with him." Bruce Jacoby - Remo, Inc. / Manager of Marching and Education
