A full-on drum spectacular featuring three of the world’s greatest drummers in concert with the Rodger Fox Big Band.

Dennis Chambers is a drumming legend who has recorded and performed with artists such as Santana, Steely Dan, Parliament/Funkadelic, John Scofield, The Jacksons, The Brecker Brothers, Victor Wooten, Mike Stern, and many others. Dennis is mostly known for his ability to perform with impeccable and funky timing in virtually any style, as well as his fast chops – but he’s perhaps most noted for his jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music playing.
