It's been a while since my last update. We are very busy with the new Buddy Rich Big Band. We have had a very successful few months. Gregg Potter is doing a stellar job playing with the band! He adds a new fresh vibe to the whole thing!! The Memorial Concert in London was a huge success, and we are already booked for next year. Mark your calendars for April 20, 2013...venue TBA. Check out the pics from the April 2 show.
We will be playing in NYC on June 14th at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The show will benefit Voices Against Brain Cancer, a foundation dear to my heart! Playing with us the evening will be the incredible Arturo Sandoval, and Will Lee on bass. Also on the bill is the amazing Jimmy Hopper...if you haven't seen him, you owe it to yourself to do so! For ticket info go to www.voicesagainstbraincancer.org!
More dates to be announced in the coming weeks!
As always, thank you all for your continued support of what we do for Buddy.
See you soon.
My good friend Chris Newell at the PimpCo drum company will make 69 of these beautiful snare drums commemorating the 25th anniversary of Buddy's passing.. One drum for every year of Buddy's life. They are incredibly beautiful and a must have for any collector! They are numbered and signed and come with a beautiful certificate of authenticity signed by Chris and me. Please contact them directly for more info.
