With his matchless, dazzling, ambidextrous skills Billy Cobham has applied the same insistent fervor to his long list of monumental achievements. He’s an accomplished composer and record producer.

It is a rarely known fact that he was at the forefront of the electronic music industry and its development through Jazz.

He was one of the first percussionists, along with Max Roach and Tony Williams to utilize the Electronic Drum Controller made in 1968 by the Meazzi Drum Company in Milano, Italy, while on concert tour with Horace Silver in Europe. He is one of the few Percussionists, specializing in the Jazz drum set to lead his own band. The award winning Cobham has custom designed trend setting acoustic and electronic drum sets and has endorsed products that he created and refined.

(+support 25/26/27: Preston-Glasgow-Lowe)

Preston - Glasgow - Lowe 

David Preston, Kevin Glasgow & Laurie Lowe are three of London's most creative young instrumentalists. Their music is a mash-up of relentless rhythmic energy, harmonic dystopia, and virtuosic improvisations. 

Expanding the format of the guitar trio with intricate and unique compositions, they draw influence from an expansive array of styles, whilst maintaining a focused original sound. 

They will release their sophomore album on the internationally acclaimed Whirlwind Recordings in November 2018. 

“Reimagining jazz – rock fusion with modern invention and creative innovation”
