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...

"With Sammy, it's about 2 things: the MUSIC and the STUDENT. Period. He gives the impression that every day he finds himself lucky enough to wake up in the morning and spread the gospel about making great drumming happen. It doesn't matter whether the student is a hotshot Conservatory cat or a middle schooler just starting out, Sammy approaches the deal with the same passion, the same enthusiasm, the same spirit of giving that enables students of all levels to gain maximally from being in his presence. It's not about Sammy, it's about the music. Not Sammy's music, THE music. You'll not find a finer example of sharing and caring and giving people a leg up in the whole world. Simply put, Sammy K is a delight to be around, and the compassion he shares with students gives everyone he touches the best shot at being all they can be." Hal Melia - Northern Kentucky University
