With a heavy heart

October 13, 2007

It is with a heavy heart I must announce that Rick Barrickman the creator and driving force behind S-Hoop Drum Hoops has passed away. Rick was genuine, friendly and had a great sense of humor, he will be missed. It is hoped that his brother will take over the operations of S-Hoops, but the most immediate thing that is needed is prayer for his friends and family.

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
