For the fifth year, Natal and Marshall have teamed up with drummer and S.U.N. guitarist Brian Thomas Tichy to present the Bonzo Bash at NAMM 2013.
The Bonzo Bash NAMM Jamm celebrates the life of Led Zeppelin drummer John Henry Bonham by giving drummers a chance to play their favourite Led Zeppelin track on a John Bonham replica drum kit provided by Natal, complete with Paiste gong and timpani, centre stage with support from house band, The Moby Dicks.
Bonzo Bash founder, Tichy commented: "Bonzo Bash is a drummer's playground. There's plenty of toys and our parents taught us to play well with others! It is a relatively simple concept. When I first thought of this the idea seemed too cool not to try. It's a unique night, seeing how all of these great drummers approach the same drum set and make it their own."
