On Sunday, April 22, 2018, Rick Smith presented another memorable vintage and custom drum show at The Sphinx Shriners Center in Newington, Connecticut. Featured clinicians this year were long-time Journey drummer, Steve Smith, and Paul Francis - Director of Research & Design /Quality at the Avedis Zildjian Company. Both Paul and Steve entertained large audiences, giving them some truly inspirational performances. Also in attendance were several well-known drummers including – Gary Asher - Joe Corsello – Arti Dixson - Daniel Glass – Andrew Klein - Dave Mattacks – Adam Nussbaum and Bobby T Torello.
A large contingent of dealers enjoyed a steady stream of Musicians and fans checking out the merchandise. Over forty dealers were set up comfortably on two floors, including a consignment area. All the clinics were held in a large adjacent auditorium.
Selected Exhibitors Included:
Bill Ludwig - WFL III DRUMS

Once again, I received tons of positive feedback from those in attendance – This included a large contingent of drum enthusiasts and dealers. A steady flow of customers was evident throughout the day… Many fans were already looking forward to next years’ event…. Especially, former Michael Bolton - Johnny Winter drummer - Bobby T Torello … Bobby never misses the Connecticut Drum Show.
