The theme for 2014 was ‘Inspirations and Influences’. We referenced some iconic drummers through performing a famous piece that they either recorded or played in a live setting. There were performances paying tribute to drummers like Jeff Porcaro, John Bonham, Steve Gadd and Phil Collins, to name a few. Performers for this event were Shannon Devy, Heinrich Goosen, Darren Petersen, Sheldon Yoko and David West. Yamaha Music South Africa provided valuable support in the form on additional drum kits and a PA system. They also very generously supplied the main prize of a full 5 piece Yamaha Gigmaker drum kit. Paul Bothner Music provided some additional support and prizes in association with Zildjian SA, and SoundOut! supplied lighting and did the sound engineering at the performance.
