It was a 36 hour non stop Drums/Music Marathon and it started in the middle of the river Mersey on Saturday 26th of January and finished at 10.00pm on Sunday 27th January. It was a complete success and i am glad to say I have kept in touch with Steve and the Lad's since. I would like to draw your attention to Steve White's amazing display of drumming on the very latest Zildjian Cymbals Video. The Zildjian family have a brand new line of cymbals available to buy.
