Exclusive to Olby’s
‘Drums At The Front’ provides you with the entire PB Underground (PBUG) album – without the drums – allowing you to fully express your own unique voice behind the drum kit to real band arrangements with real musicians, not uninspiring midi tracks.
As part of the PBUG perfomance we will feature an exclusive one hour pre show workshop where Pete will give you a background into some of the songs on the album and grooves he has been a part of, from artists such as Level 42. He will also share his personal influences, and how they have mentally impacted his drumming of always playingfor the song, not yourself.
Workshop 6pm – 7pm.
