If you love music
you must see the MASTER DRUMMER
A Front Row Seat
Imagine getting to hang out in a world-class recording studio with one of the most talented drummers alive. If you love music then Dennis Chambers is a name to know.
From being asked to play with James Brown at the age of 13 (his mom wouldn’t let him!), to joining P-Funk at 19, to turning down playing with Miles Davis, to playing with Santana and many other top acts, this guy has stories you must hear.
Dennis has played on well over 400 records with professional groups that span the different categories of music from funk to fusion, rock to reggae, jazz to Latin … Dennis Chambers has played them all with an extremely rare level of mastery.
An Outstanding Musician
Dennis Chambers started playing drums at the age of 4 and was playing in clubs when he was 6 years old! Since then he has worked with a long list of some of the biggest names in all genres of the music world including:
• Santana • Dr Dre • Steely Dan
• P-Funk • Snoop Dog • Bill Evans
• Herbie Hancock • and many more
In this video, you will get an insider’s look at the life of a man Carlos Santana called a Master Drummer. Plus you will hear some crazy stories from the tours (like when a singer caught on fire … true story!), you’ll learn valuable lessons about working in a band, and how to get the most enjoyment out of your musical experiences.
Santana’s Music Director & Bass Player
To accompany Dennis we were very lucky to get the bass player and music director for Santana, Benny Rietveld.
Benny has 11 Grammy Awards and has also worked with a long list of top artists like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Sheila E., Booker T Jones, and many more. He’s also scored film soundtracks and is a player you must see! He and Dennis team up to tell stories, make jokes, and deliver some incredible performances. Benny is a guy to follow if you want to know about how to make great music.
