On June 11th Ron Powell was the featured artists in a Guitar Center Session held at GC’s Fountain Valley location. An accomplished musician and performer, Percussionist Ron Powell has been touring the world with such greats as Kenny G., Diana Ross and Sergio Mendes. Well versed in a number of styles of percussion Ron Powell gave a large audience of dedicated percussionists, who came out despite the Championship Laker game, an amazing evening full of performances and educating conversation.
Ron Powell who is both an amazing performer and educator performed the majority of the clinic taking the audience through many styles of music including Latin, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian. By the end of the clinic every audience member had a percussion instrument in their hand as Ron brought everyone into the performance by initiating a drum circle supported by a traditional Brazilian groove. With the hit of the closing note it was all smiles throughout the room and everyone left with a wealth of new knowledge about percussion and looking forward to their next drumming experience.
Ron Powell, a Remo Drumhead endorsee performed using Remo’s Crimplock Symmetry Fiberskyn® conga heads on all 5 of his LP Galaxy congas, Clear Ambassador® drumheads on his timbales and a Fiberskyn® head on his LP djembe.
