As the propulsive engine driving the Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Chamberlin earned respect as one of the most popular, influential drummers of the '90s. His extraordinarily quick hands, furious snare rolls, and crackling rimshots recalled the likes of Ian Paice and Dennis Chambers, and yet equally important to the band was his tasteful, understated playing on their quieter numbers. Presented by Zildjian, Sakae, Vic Firth and Remo. http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Jimmy_Chamberlin.html

Matt Garstka is regarded as one of the key progressive drummers of his generation. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2011 and moved to Los Angeles shortly thereafter to further his musical pursuits. Soon after moving to LA he joined the instrumental band Animals as Leaders and has been touring with them internationally. Presented by Tama, Meinl, Vic Firth and Remo. https://mattgarstka.com/

Gorden Campbell has worked with a wide variety of artists, including George Duke, Jessica Simpson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Mary J. Blige, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Whitney Houston, Gerald Albright, Bobby Lyle, Doc Powell, Eric Benét, Kenny Lattimore, Rahsaan Patterson, Tyrese, Avant, Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway and others. He recently toured with En Vogue, James Ingram, Peabo Bryson & Marilyn McCoo. Presented by Yamaha, Zildjian and Vater. http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Gorden_Campbell.html

If you listen to Country Radio, you're hearing Shannon Forrest's drum sound every day. He has played on more Top 10 hits than any drummer in Nashville for seven years running, earning a reputation as "the hit-maker." He's played with top artists like Brooks & Dunn, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Faith Hill, Sugarland, LeAnn Rimes, Willie Nelson, Alabama, Trisha Yearwood, Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, and many more. Presented by Pearl and Paiste. http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Shannon_Forrest.html
