Default New News at Just Drums in VA

Hey guys - Shane here. I just wanted to stop in and make a couple of announcements.

Thanks to many of you and guys just like you who are passionate and can appreciate the local pro drum shop, we are proud to announce that we are MOVING. We are moving to a brand new location very close to our current one.

The new store is being completed now and will open up on Monday, November 30! The new store will have additional lesson rooms, and THREE times the floor space. We're getting a new store three times the size of the current one.

The lessons are built like none other too. This is where we spend a lot of money. The walls have a sandwich construction - 1" of special sound absorbing sheet rock, insulation, and another 1" of sheet rock! Heavy, steel gauge doors and acoustic Aurlex foam on the inside walls. The rooms will be (almost) sound proof!

We will have more gear too and will be picking up one...maybe even TWO new brand names in drums. We will have the largest stick & mallet inventory in Virginia too. We will carry and stock hundreds of models of sticks, mallets of types (timp, marimba, vibe, bass drum, tenor, etc), and will have the largest hand percussion section in Virginia as well. Wait 'til you see photos of the hand percussion section!


Chris Adler from Lamb of God will be in the new Just Drums store on Saturday, December 5 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm for a 'Meet & Greet'. Autographs and pictures are welcome. This event is FREE! Come meet Chris Adler (Meinl Artist) and check out the new store! We will have items on hand for him to autograph for you.

We're not done with the good news yet. Returning to Just Drums is world renown performer, educator, and recording artist Pat Petrillo!

Pat teaches at the Drummer's Collective in New York. He is a high in demand studio musician. He tours with Gloria Gaynor, Patti LaBelle, Dee -Lite, Patti Smythe, and Glen Burtnik, Ed Hamilton, and Oko Jumu. Pat plays in Broadway shows such as A Chorus Line, Grease, Footloose and Dreamgirls. Pat is the author of the award winning book & DVD 'Hands, Groove, and Fills'.

Pat came to Just Drums in September 2007 for a clinic and he packed the house. It was literally standing room only. Here is a review and pictures from that event: http://www.justdrumsonline.com/events/09152007.aspx

Pat is returning to Just Drums for a full clinic and a great show. The clinic is on Friday, January 8 at 7pm. Tickets are $10 in advance and are on sale in Just Drums and online at our web site (http://www.justdrumsonline.com/store...10-ticket.aspx).

There will only be 125 tickets sold so seating IS limited (for real). Buy your tickets now and come to this amazing event!

We're STILL not done with the good news! The day after the clinic, Saturday January 9, Just Drums and Pat Petrillo will be offering exclusive seating in a Master Class. Learn with one of the greats in the business up close and personal.

The class is from 5pm - 7pm and there are ONLY 15 available seats. The fee for the class is $75. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Again, we did this in 2007 and it was a sell out. A review and pictures can be found on our web site here at http://www.justdrumsonline.com/events/11252007.aspx.

To register for a class, please call us or stop by the shop. You can also register and purchase admission online at http://www.justdrumsonline.com/events/default.aspx.

Once again, thanks to everyone who has supported us go against other monster retailers and help us make this dream a reality.

I thank all of you.

Drum On!
