The London Drum Show – Aaron Spears joins the line-up!


The London Drum Show have recently announced another huge name for 2017, with Aaron Spears joining the line-up.

In association with Zildjian, Aaron will perform on the Main Stage on Sunday 12 November and will hold a Q&A session on the Masterclass Stage on the Saturday. He joins Jimmy Chamberlin, Andy Gangadeen, Kaz Rodriguez, Steve White, Ian Palmer, Jim Riley, Anika Nilles, Mike Clark, Louise Bartle and Matty Brown on the bill.

“The London Drum Show will always stand out in my mind as one of my favourite drum festivals because of the passion of the people who attend,” Spears said on being added to the show. “The energy level in the halls, at the different booths and in the performance auditorium registered right off the scale at about an 11…I’m really looking forward to returning again this year to share and also excited to learn from some of the other amazing musicians that will be performing during LDS! It is going to be EPIC!

Aaron will also join his friend Kaz Rodriguez on stage at the end of Kaz’s performance, and we hear they have something very special up their sleeves.
