Praise for “Drummer’s Weekend”:

“Rich taught me that enthusiasm and passion are contagious. I have been in bands and playing in front of people since I was 11, and have since reached a whole new level after living the CRASH life. I would highly recommend the Drummer’s Weekend to anyone who is serious about drumming!”
– Cody Hawkins/Age 17, Upstate New York

“I knew when I signed up for the Rockstar Package at Rich Redmond’s Drummer’s Weekend in Nashville that I was going to be part of something great! The opportunity to learn from, hang, and jam with some of the finest musicians in the business was what I was yearning for and is exactly what I got! What I didn’t expect was how well treated and special we all were made to feel. The accommodations were sweet, the food was plenty, wonderful door prizes were handed out, and friendships were made. It was OVER THE TOP (just like Rich himself)! I came home with much more then a drum experience…I came home with memories that will last a lifetime! If you’re looking to something good for your drumming and yourself….check out Rich Redmond’s Drummer’s Weekend! You’ll be glad you did!”
– Bobby A/Professional drummer/educator

“When dreaming of a career as a professional drummer; you think so much about your chops, skills, and proficiency behind the kit. Redmond’s “Drummers Weekend” not only addresses this, but all the other important facets of being a working musician; your attitude, work ethic, versatility, and preparedness. They key to achieving any goal is to dream big, and dream with FOCUS. Having 3 days of hands on time with the best in the business taught me exactly what to expect, and how to best live my dream.”
-Jimmy Elcock/Drummer and Bandleader for Jamie Lynn Spears

“If Rich’s “Drummer’s Weekend” were stock, he would be locked up for insider information trading! Through this weekend I learned that IT IS possible to have a professional drumming career. Drummer’s Weekend answers the what if’s and how to’s, while re-igniting the personal investment of one’s drumming passion! I highly recommend this event to ALL drummers regardless of gender and age. I would be attending the 2nd annual event, but I can’t……. because it would be cutting into my moving expenses to Nashville!!!! On top of that, you could earn a very cool nickname from your peers, ha! Looking forward to seeing you at the 3rd annual event as a local!”
– John “Freaking” Salazar/Lifelong Drummer

“I have had the pleasure of attending Rich Redmond’s first annual Crash Course for Success Drummer’s Weekend last year and was blow away with the entire experience. Not only did I walk away as a better player, but I was also given invaluable insight on what it really takes to make it in the music business. 6 months after attending I landed my first professional gig as a musician and owe a lot of it to the concepts I learned throughout this course. This was easily one of the best business decisions I made for myself as a musician. Thanks Rich!”
– Dan Mahoney Jr., Chicago, IL

“This camp changed the way I play for the better in so many ways! The one on one instruction from Rich, and ALL of the incredible guests made me think about how I played the drums and what my drum parts means to a song. Rich said to me, “If you were to hear what you recorded back 20 years from now, would you be happy with what you played?” That REALY opened up my eyes to play the drums more for the group and the song than to play for myself and what I thought was cool. Rich is one of those guys in the music biz that we all strive to be. But the one thing that sets him apart is his willingness to give. He gives of his time, his knowledge and his resources. I had to pay the over weight fee at the airport coming home because I received SO many door prizes and exclusive giveaways! Incredible! Don’t miss out on being apart of this opportunity! Rich has become a great friend and mentor. He encouraged me to move to Nashville and I am now a full-time working drummer based in Nashville!”
– J.W. Jaeger/professional Drummer

“Attending Rich’s Drummer Weekend provided me with the skills and information I needed to kick-start my dream of playing drums for a living. Rich instilled more passion, professionalism, and a sense of overall musicianship in 3 days than I had learned in my 11 years of playing! I left camp with new friends, new knowledge, and more desire than ever before. If you are someone looking to break into the professional music industry, this drumming experience will change your life! I had no serious gigs when I showed up at the camp, but by using what I learned at camp, I have since been busy playing almost every weekend with a regional touring act. Thanks Rich!”
– Evan Berg/Now Professional Drummer
