Legendary drummer Kenny Aronoff is heading to UK MI stores for a series of performances, where he will showcase his Yamaha DTX drum set-up.
Aronoff has played live and recorded with some of the world's biggest artists, including The Smashing Pumpkins, Jon Bon Jovi, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Alanis Morissette, The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Willie Nelson, Avril Lavigne, Joe Cocker, Mick Jagger, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf, Santana and many others.
The drummer added Yamaha DTX components to his set-up to create a wider sound variety. “I am using these tools to be pro-active and to help me do sessions in a world that I haven’t been involved with so far,” said Aronoff. “I’m using Yamaha DTX live too, the possibilities are endless!”
Attendees will get the opportunity to check out Aronoff's kit, receive valuable recording tips and listen to him perform a selection of the hits he has recorded throughout his career.
“We are so happy to welcome Kenny to the UK as part of this European Tour,” added Gavin Thomas, UK product manger for Yamaha DTX. “There has been so much interest from professional artists in using Yamaha DTX due to the recent product developments in playability, performance and recording. To experience these possibilities demonstrated by one of the most respected drummers in modern times is a very rare and exciting opportunity.”
