On 19 September we had our 7th edition of the Drum Kit Exposé. This year we paid tribute to Jeff Porcaro, legendary drummer on Toto fame and one of the post prolific studio drummers of the 1970s and 1980s. Naturally, a good portion of the programme consisted of songs by Toto, but there was a wealth of other material to choose from to highlight other aspects of Jeff’s career. As is usual for the Drum Kit Exposé, four drummers were in the line-up and for the 1st time, live musicians were used for the entire programme. Special thanks goes out to all the musicians who gave up their time, Adrian Fowler, Sheldon Yoko, Jarryd West, David West, Claire de Kock, Alex Mayers, Jeandre Schultz, Shannon Devy and Beau Soleil students Dalya Zimbler and Aiseah Ramos. Once again Yamaha sponsored a drum kit as the main give away for the evening, as well as some T-shirts. They also sponsored the sound equipment and some instruments. Paul Bothner Music and Zildjian provided some additional prizes and SoundOut sponsored and amazing lighting display in their usual professional and efficient manner. A massive thank you to all involved for making the 2017 event a success, and to all those that came to the show!
