Holiday Drum Summit Wednesday at Tulane

It seems like every day of late’s been deemed something or other — Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, so why not designate tomorrow Drum Summit Wednesday?

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. November 28, the Rump-a-pum-pum Drum Summit, hosted at Tulane University’s Dixon Hall Auditorium, will showcase drummers and holiday beats, reworked New Orleans style.

Shannon Powell will ring in the season, New Orleans-style, along with Johnny Vidacovich and ensemble.

Local players Shannon Powell and Johnny Vidacovich will be accompanied by pianist Larry Sieberth and Cuban percussionist Alexey Marti.

Bonus: It’s free. The event is sponsored by the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South/Music Rising program. For more information, call 504-314-2889.
