Meinl Drum Festival - Things Never Turn Out The Way You Expect

Drum Superstar Johnny Rabb will fill in for Tommy Clufetos at the Meinl Drum Festival
Tommy Clufetos won't be part of the Meinl Drum Festival due to a recording session with Ozzy Osbourne

right, they never turn out the way you expect.

tommy clufetos called us yesterday telling that he can't be part of our festival, because he will be busy recoring with ozzy osbourne. we completely understand his situation. ozzy is his main priority. he would be for everyone else too.

however, i had to find a sub right away. after some very urgent and hectic phonecalls, drum superstar johnny rabb agreed to fill in for tommy.

new flights had to be booked. johnny's cymbals and drums had to be arranged. plus a million other little details needed to be changed. and all of that very last minute. now we're ready to go. in just a few hours i will hop on board another flight with service to mexico city were our second international meinl drum festival will take place on july 13. i surely hope that everything will turn out now the way i expect and can not wait for it finally to start.

stay tuned on and on our social media sites for updates. it would be great to see some of you there.
