On May 22, 2010, the Modern Drummer Festival returned to the Memorial Auditorium at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. Hudson Music was there to capture this historic event as the world’s premier drum festival returned to the venue where it all began.
The lineup for the 2010 Festival featured world-class drumming artists of all styles: the aggressively complex attack of progressive star Chris Pennie (Coheed & Cambria, Dillinger Escape Plan), a stylistically diverse set from Nashville session master Shannon Forrest (Faith Hill, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts), the unstoppable groove of Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live Band, Brecker Bros., Bruce Springsteen) and his band House of Diablo, the cutting-edge stylings of breakbeat/jam-band/jazz master Adam Deitch (John Scofield, Lettuce), the amazing creativity of international drum star Benny Greb (3erGezimmeR, Strom and Wasser, Stoppok), and the classic funk of New Orleans master Stanton Moore (Galactic, Irma Thomas, Joss Stone) and his trio.

As an added bonus, these amazingly educational performances are also included.Also included is a printable PDF eBook containing transcriptions of select performances and other educational info.This MD 2010 DVD package is jammed with both great performances and tons of educational insight for drummers of all levels!
