Dream Cymbals are celebrating 10 years designing and manufacturing some of the finest cymbals in the world. Join us for our celebration of all things Dream, including spectacular stylistic performances from three very different drummers on the U.K. Dream Cymbals roster; Adam Gammage, Lloyd Ryan and Trevor Taylor. LLOYD RYAN Lloyd Ryan is regarded as one of the U.K.'s most prolific drum educators with many of his students having gone on to achieve international success. In total, Lloyd's students have recorded 33 Top 10 U.K. singles and 32 Top 10 U.K. albums. These include Phil Collins, Derrick McKenzie (Jamiroquai) and Nick Simms (Cornershop). Lloyd is widely recognised as an expert of the big band style of drumming, having worked extensively with the Ken Mackintosh and Ray Ellington Big Bands, as well as major recording artists like Matt Monro, Tony Christie and Gene Vincent, as well as working alongside the legendary Buddy Rich at the Lewisham Jazz Festival in 1986. ADAM GAMMAGE Adam Gammage is a drummer from the U.K. currently about to embark on a huge sold out tour with Tom Grennan, a singer/songwriter also from the U.K. After touring and recording worldwide with The Hours, Baxter and Sparkadia (Sydney-based indie band), the opportunity arose for Adam to become stickman for X-Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson in 2013. Once on board, he made U.K. TV appearances on the likes of X-Factor, This Morning and The Alan Carr Show. At the end of Rebecca's 'Sounds of Freedom' campaign, Adam stumbled upon Eliot Sumner. Adam is all over Eliot's 'Information' album which demanded a much more rocky and electronic approach. This led the band to make their way to America for touring and TV appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and James Cordon's shows in front of tens of millions live. TREVOR TAYLOR Trevor Taylor has been involved in music for over 50 years. He has studied with Reg Williams, John Thomson, Frank King and Alan Jackson. After many years as a professional drummer, he later became more interested in percussion and studied at the London Guildhall, and with Gilbert Webster, the then principle percussionist with the LSO. He also played many solo concerts of contemporary percussion pieces and recorded a solo CD. He has since played in many ensembles and groups both as a drummer and percussionist. See and hear Dream Cymbals at Event in association with U.K. Dream Cymbals distributors SVM Percussion, The Vince Dunn Orchestra and Drumsense.
