Alex Acuña Drum Clinic


On , Juan Esteban, Michelle and I went to the Long & McQuade sponsored Alex Acuña Drum Clinic in the Orpheus Theatre at SAIT.

I remember going to Alex Acuña’s drum clinic many years back (early 90’s) the last time he came to Calgary, and this clinic was pretty much the same content. Anyways, here are some photos (and a YouTube video) I took at the clinic:

(For some reason, YouTube made the video a lot darker and more saturated than the one I uploaded.)
