Default Official forum UK meet up/other arrangements/news. London Drum Show!

London Drum Show 2014 is a big deal this year, for many reasons. Double the size (by far Europe's biggest dedicated drumming event) & a stellar artist lineup are just two highlights I can think of. Dates are Saturday November 8th/Sunday November 9th. http://www.londondrumshow.com/visit/live-stage/

Background info out of the way, please use this thread for all information about forum member participation & arrangements. I'll kick off with early arrangements for the Drummerworld forum group photo.

This year, the forum member photo call will be a bit different. I've reached out to well known & respected pro forum members, & I've already had positive replies. Most kindly, both Gavin & Todd have agreed to attend the forum group photo shoot on the Saturday despite their busy programs. Unfortunately, that means a slightly fluid meet up time arrangement that will likely only be nailed down on the day, so communication will be key. Please chime in/check in here for details as we get closer to the event, & also to let us know who will be attending.

That's all for now. Just remains for me to say how much I'm looking forward to meeting faces old & new.

Andy.

I know it's a touch early, but please chime in on who's attending. I'm trying to arrange some forum member treats, in addition to Gavin Harrison & Todd Sucherman graciously agreeing to join in the forum photo :)

I'm going to price a.flight across the pond and the cost.of a London hotel room. Last time I visited I stayed at the Park Lane Hilton but that was on my employer's dime. If I make the trip, the accommodation won't be as nice but man, what a great excuse for a trip! Now if I can just swing the finances.

Thanks for organising, Andy. Sounds like an excellent plan.
Would be great to meet those of you guys who can make it.
I have some plans for that Saturday I'll have to try to re-arrange, so a maybe for now.

A mixture of good & bad news. Duncan missing Saturday's festivities, Ben missing altogether, really not good. On the plus side, new people for me to meet :)

You're kidding - right? Really? Wow, I can promise a super welcome:) Don't forget to factor in a shipping saving on a certain drum ;) ;) ;)

if you want help finding a hotel, please let me know. Of course, it's late in the day for bargains. We're staying in a small low end budget hotel we nailed for cheap earlier this year. As long as it's clean, that's enough. We won't be spending any time there anyhow other than sleeping.

I know you told me ages ago you were going on the Sunday, Duncan, but I've only just realised this means I won't see you :'(

I'll just have to hang around with dear David and Liam and rely on them to cheer me up.

Incidentally, what if anything do people have on their shopping lists? Finances permitting (I still have one more saddle to sell) I'm after a new crash. I know exactly what I want, but I'm going to test-drive as many as I can, just for the hell of it.

Nothing for me either - mostly curious about the atmosphere...

Sorry to disappoint. The good thing for you Madge, is that you get to see your favourite Lovely Young Men! I'm sorry I won't see you either. I can only really do one day this year and regretfully it has to be the Sunday when the hangovers are in full flow but I'll do my best to be my usual self (for better or worse)! I know it's unacceptable and I have no idea how I'm going to live with myself.

Shopping list? Nothing in particular. I just like hanging around drums...

Apeldoorn, apparently. It's a festival called Brainstorm Festival. It'll be fun I'm sure, but a real shame to miss the LDS...this will be the first year I've not been able to go at all, actually.

Agreed all round! Yes, I'm there Friday David. Earliest load in this year is 10:00AM - now that's unacceptable!

to watch and hear Claus Hessler, Gergo Borlai, Thomas Lang, Florian Alexandru-Zorn,
George Kollias and Milyous Johnson on the same day :)! What a lineup that was, too!!
Gergo and Claus absolutely killed it!!!

That's quite a show right there! I take it you enjoyed yourself immensely :)

On the subject of enjoyment, & if you want to experience something utterly different - so different, that it makes you examine how your drumming translates to other artists, miss this at your peril! It's free, you're already there - 11:30 Saturday, on the Cafe/acoustic stage in the exhibition hall :) Of course, if you miss it for free, you can see the show again (albeit longer & with more dancers) for a mere 30 a ticket headlining theatre at this year's London Jazz Festival! This is not normal drum show stuff!!!

I'm wishing that too Larry. I didn't have nearly enough time with you, & TBH, with this year's show being a much bigger event, I kinda wished you'd come this year rather than last.

Larry, as a side issue, how far are you from West Berlin - NJ?

Arsebiscuits - that overlaps with Gavin Harrison, unless he's only doing 15 minutes? Lots of big sweary words.

ETA I wish Larry, Grea and Ben were coming again this year too. Henri is coming, isn't he?

ETA I wish Larry, Grea and Ben were coming again this year too. Henri is coming, isn't he?
Arsebiscuits indeed (although I don't care to think how you came up with that term :( The clash with Gavin's MainStage performance is most unfortunate. That said, as there's continuous shows throughout each day between the main stage & masterclass suite, it was always going to clash with something good. The main stage theatre holds 550 people, & there's going to be between 3 & 5,000 at the show each day, so plenty of people who didn't get in to see Gavin will get the best possible alternative experience :)

Well I'm still miffed, because I've got a ticket for GH but I've spent the past 12 months wishing I'd been able to see Michele's show. Gavin's just going to have to manage without me :(

It's one of Father Jack's, by the way.

That would be an ecumenical matter.
