Philly Drum Project's One-Year Anniversary with Ari Hoenig
Last April, Philly Drum Project began hosting monthly events to help drummers in Philly share gear, lessons, beats, and gigs. The monthly series, entitled Beats, Brews, & Banter, has hosted workshops by such drummers as Eric Slick of Dr. Dog, George “Spanky” McCurdy of Lady Gaga, and Chuck Treece of Bad Brains. Help PDP celebrate its first year as an organization with a one-year anniversary show.

Ari is known for his unusual and intense approach to drumming emphasizing complex rhythms in direct harmony with other group members.

Ari has recorded written and produced 9 cd’s as a leader. He has written and published 3 educational books, 3 educational DVD’s and a songbook. Currently, his group Ari Hoenig and Punk Bop tours worldwide and performs weekly at the legendary New York jazz club Smalls.

“[Ari]'s got Rhythm of every variety…trickles of rhythm seeping into all the cracks and at regular intervals he changes the rhythm, pouring it out or stoppering it, turning its emphasis around, subdividing or refocusing it and making it follow the melody."
--Ben Ratliff New York Times
Loop 2.4.3.
Loop 2.4.3.
Loop 2.4.3 creates uniquely American music with a rock and roll heart and skills informed by classical training, jazz, poetry, and experimentalism. Praised for their “intricate, energetic performances,” (New York Times) and their “taut compositions with a stunning improvisational sense,” (Time Out Chicago) virtuosic percussionists and composers Thomas Kozumplik and Lorne Watson create evocative narratives using percussion, electronics, voice, strings, and more. Their “transportive percussion odysseys” (Boston Phoenix) journey through grounded primal energy to cosmic atmospheric reaches in “dramatic, layered, colorful, and brilliantly constructed” (First Coast News.com) compositions most often compared to the music of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and Harry Partch. “Kozumplik and Watson never sound like makers of arbitrary music...It all sounds like part of a well-thought-out tradition. Only the tradition has never existed until now.” (Fresh Air, NPR)
