Dave Weckl at  Philippos Nakas Conservatory on November 10, at 19:00 - 41 HIPPOCRATOUS STR., ATHENS - 210 36340007 - ticket 10 euros -
Drum workshop with one of the most important jazz - fusion drummers of our time is being organized by the Philippos Nakas Conservatory.
Ten years after his first memorable workshop at the Conservatory,  Dave Weckl is visiting again on Tuesday, November 10, at 7 pm, for a thunderous drum workshop.

Dave Weckl started his international career in the 80s, playing with Anthony Jackson, Michel Camilo, Madonna, Robert Plant, Diana Ross and George Benson, and as a member of Paul Simon's band and also as member of Chick Corea's Elektric Band - a collaboration that made a huge impression to the musical audiences worldwide.

He continued playing with his band and Mike Stern's band, and showed significant personal discography and educational DVDs. Today Dave Weckl continues to be active either as sideman or leader. 

For more than 25 years, Dave Weckl has developed and maintained a reputation among fans, peers, and the international music community as one of the great living drummers. For this, he has received numerous accolades and honors; Modern Drummer inducted Dave into their Hall of Fame and named him 'one of the 25 best drummers of all time.'

But these honors, in addition to many more bestowed by the music community, are the product of Dave's undying commitment to making great compositions. Dave's incredibly dynamic and diverse drumming, which has inspired musicians worldwide, is built on a solid foundation of knowledge and respect for music.
