Rick Smith presented another successful vintage and custom drum show at The Sphinx Shriners Center in Newington, Connecticut. This years’ featured clinicians were Gregg Bissonette and Richie Morales.

Once again, both the clinics and dealer booths were jammed with drumming enthusiasts of all ages. It was standing room only in the auditorium for Gregg and Richie. Both of their presentations were educational, inspirational, and entertaining.

Over forty dealers were set up on two floors in the adjacent building. Some of those in attendance included:

From the feedback I received from numerous drummers and dealers…Everyone in attendance had a great time, and were looking forward to next years’ show.
