Great Leather and Rich Redmond

Dena Hamilton - Friday, May 11, 2012

Last night my husband, Paul Hamilton, and I went to one of Rich Redmond's CRASH Drum Clinics last night at the Civic Center in Peoria, IL. (Rich Redmond is the recording/live drummer for Multi-Platinum Country Recording Artist Jason Aldean and many others.) 

It was an outstanding event  hosted by The Moon Dog Drum House from Galesburg, IL. Rich's presentation was full of great equipment information and technique demonstrations, while being highly entertaining and truly inspirational. I suggest you watch his site for a CRASH clinic near you!  You will love it!

Of course I enjoyed his compliments and endorsement of his Great Leather Drumstick Bag:)


Our good friend and awesome drummer, Nick Fairley, the infamous (and deservedly so) Rich Redmond, and myself, Dena Hamilton.

Hey Drummers,
Here's an equipment video from Rich (if you haven't seen it on YouTube already!). It's really comprehensive and informative. AND ....included in his favorite cool gear - his Great Leather Drumstick Bag! (11:56)
Check it out!

Rich Redmond - Jason Aldean Drummer/Producer/Writer/Speaker


Dena Hamilton - Wednesday, February 01, 2012

FYI -. Rich Redmond is in the running for an award  from Modern Drummer Magazine and it would be really great to see him win.  Rich is an amazing drummer, producer, and clinician - and a super human being!  They don't come any more talented and hard working - or nicer.  He really deserves this so take a minute to follow this link and vote!  (Vote Best Country Drummer and write him in under the Studio & Clinician catagories.)


Hello everyone! 

      I hope 2012 proves to be an exciting and fruitful year for everyone! 

I know everyone is slammed with NAMM, but if you get a chance...every vote counts! :)

Please feel free to vote for me in the 2012 Modern Drummer Reader's Polls as "Best Country Drummer". You can also add me to the "Studio" or "Clinician" line if so inclined. 

The deadline to vote is February 14th. Thank you so much for this and all you do! 

It is always nice to be recognized for your life's work. 

Many Many Cheers, 

Rich Redmond
