1 Terry Bozzio Drum Solo Tour on Wed Jul 23, 2014 8:12 pm

Terry Bozzio is doing a solo drum tour this fall, he will play clubs around the United States with the U.S.S. Bozzio kit.
It will be the smaller drum sizes that he uses, I read it will be a Do it yourself tour, he will be traveling with his wife
and his roadie in a Winnebago.
He will be playing New York City and Oakland and Los Angeles, as well as 2 dozen other cities.

After watching my colleagues, from Terry Bozzio to Barry Finnerty to Randy Brecker, Ada Rovatti and Neil Jason. Considering what they have to deal with in terms of traveling, etc. to just play 90 minutes of music on the average, per day I must tip my hat to the whole community of artists of which we are a part. What Terry intends to do may just become the only way to make a living as a serious performing artist and specialist in a particular part of our musical field of operations. I feel as if we (artists) are now pulling out all stops in terms of how we sell our ideas and concepts to impresarios, promoters and buyers of performers in general just so we can have a chance to command the attention of an audience who might be interested in what we have to say through whatever musical means by coming up with imaginative concepts such as the one mentioned here about Terry and the RV. I am convinced that the audience that is the most difficult to access in the USA is in "Middle America" and not the regions harbouring the coastal cities. They are well worth the effort and investment of time and energy to access because these people will be your fans forever if they are impressed, in the positive by one's performance. Terry is definitely on the right track but the road is a physically tough one.
All the best, Terry to you and the crew!

What a grueling tour schedule! It takes a special someone
to put his or herself through a program like this...

More power to you, Terry. I'll try and catch you in Oakland
in October... I'll bring the oxygen! drunken 

That poor drum tech.....  affraid

Wow-that is a back breaking tour he's got set up.

Especially the way he's going about it. But then again, I can't picture him working in an office somewhere.
I'll try to catch his performance in Nashville this Sept. I'll bring an extra bottle of Advil to give him..Holy Moly..

I am sorry that I missed the Martyr's shows.
I was just not in the frame of mind and had
too much on my plate.

I won't miss him, again.

Terry is an artist and has done so much for us.
I will never forget that Halloween Concert and
how he changed my view towards drums.



To the father of us, all - Billy Cobham!

Terry's one man show can be a lot to take in, I have seen a few of his drum clinics over the years.
You have to be in the right mood to enjoy it, otherwise it can get a little boring.
Sometimes there is no groove at all and he will just play tom melodies for about 15-20 mins. straight.
Luckily he has many videos out, so if you miss the shows, you can always check out the videos.
His first DCI video is still my favorite and his 3 part video set entitled "Melodic Drumming and the Ostinato" is very cool.
