A wholistic concept to improve your Groove and Timefeel massively from Benny Greb.
Over the last few years Benny has rightly achieved world class status and recognition in the drum community by touring globally, entertaining and inspiring drummers worldwide with his clinics. He has performed at high profile events such as the Modern Drummer Festival in USA, Montreal Drum Festival Canada, Ultimate Drummers Weekend Australia, the World Drum Festival, the Meinl Drumfestival in Germany, Drummer Live at Wembley Arena London, and was already invited twice to perform at the Percussive Arts Society Convention in the USA.
As a Teacher /Speaker he is well respected and apart from his own Mastersession Drumcamps (held so far in Venice Italy, New York and Hamburg and Hammelburg Germany) got invited to teach in places as far as SAM Music Academy in South India
Along with his popularity in the worldwide drum community, Benny can be found playing with a broad assortment of musicians, all demanding his tasteful and immaculate playing style. From Pop/HipHopacts Stoppok / Thomas D to classical music contexts, working with the NDR Orchestra on their Zappa / Pops project and for film composer and ex-police drummer Steward Copeland., Benny is also a highly in-demand session player in his native Germany, where his studio duties also include the roles of composer and producer.
Benny writes, records, and releases his own solo records with Grebfruit being one such release. The award winning The Language of Drumming – A System For Musical Expression DVD was released in 2009 on the Hudson Music label, showing his unique approach to drumming. It is one of the best selling educational DVD’s worldwide. His critically acclaimed solo album called Benny Greb – Brassband showcases a great mixture of New Orleans Jazz and Funk and his new Group Benny Grebs MOVING PARTS fuses together Electro/Indie Sounds with the Improvisation of Jazz.
What's the DVD about?
we´ll explore the subject in a fresh way and you´ll receive tons of useful ideas and exercises.
Why DVD / DVD-length download?
Benny says: " i wanna go deep and offer a wholistic approach how you can improve your Groove and Timefeel.
in order to get this system across in a comprehensible and fun way, i need the film / DVD format. its just not something where a 3min online video format makes sense …
i´ll use the same guy i did the award winning Language of Drumming DVD with and like with all my other Products you can be assured that the quality will be awesome and you´ll get a lot out of it."
Why crowd funding? / where does the money go ?
the money will go into the production entirely…specifically that means:
- Equipment (rental of cameras/Lenses/Monitors/cables/ batteries)
- Crew (Cameramen/ Director/Light/ Editing)
- Sound ( Sound Engineer / Soundequipment/Mix/Mastering)
- Location ( rental cost of The Studio(s) / Catering/Insurance / Travel-Logistics)
- Indiegogo (Fees / Postage / Materials)
Note : this Campaign works on an all or nothing basis
… in case we don´t reach the desired amount …everything will go back to the contributors and no DVD will be made (….and Benny will cry like a dog)
in case we surpass our goal … we´ll make an even better DVD.
Let's bury the myth that groove can´t be learned
and be the living proof that its a matter of practice and having the right tools
