Re: Dennis Chambers
Saw Dennis Chambers last night with Santana, the opening night of their Vegas run. It was a fun show. There were 2 other percussionists, one playing timbales, blocks, bells, and small cymbals with sticks, the other playing hand drums. The first of those two got most of the spotlight moments. Chambers never played a solo, and rarely was featured under the lights or on the video. That was a little disappointing for me, but really it's kind of cool that a guy of his stature will play like that. He played this huge yellow kit (don't know what brand) with a giant kettle-type drum with no bottom head (don't know what it's called) mounted above the floor toms. Anyways a fun show, highly recommended if you're heading to Vegas.
