Last Minute Line-up Change For Drum Fest - Meinl Artists Win Dutch Readers Poll Results

FELIX 'D-KAT' POLLARD PLAYS THE '08 MEINL DRUM FESTIVAL
DUTCH DRUMMER STEF BROKS (TEXTURES)
DUTCH DRUMMER NORMAN BONINK (BLOF)

i hope you have all had a nice summer so far. two days after my holiday started, i got the news that CHRIS COLEMAN can not attend our drum festival due to unforeseen developments in his band's schedule. i guess we are not immune against these kind of last-minute changes, are we? i needed to act quickly on this and within a few days only we found an equivalent sub for chris. i can now proudly announce that FELIX 'D-KAT' POLLARD will play two shows on sunday september 07 (main performance and the masterclass). the updated program can be seen on meinldrumfestival.com.

felix pollard plays with lionel richie, taylor hicks, jessica simpson, clay aiken, and many others.
