The kit that both drummers shared was from Premier's exquisite One Series and sounded seriously good, despite both drummers playing at distinctively different ends of the musical spectrum.
Kicking off the night was Julien Brown. His latest gig is double drum duty with Massive Attack and Julien has also played for Westlife, Kylie Minogue and various X Factor contestants in the past. He is a seriously hard working musician and used the event to talk about his career path from church to arenas, insterpsering conversation with some superb performances.
He kicked off his set with a nice fusion workout before laying into a brief but tasty hip-hop track. It was clear Julien is capable of anything and ending his segment by effortlessly jammng with a bass player was all the proof we needed. This was a great lesson in hard graft and dedication to self-improvement and evolution.
