With Technique, Groove, and a Hit DVD, Mayer’s Popularity is Extremely HighCritically acclaimed as one of the world’s great drummers, Jojo Mayer stunned audiences with a clinic tour that saw him performing at major stores across the USA. Mayer, whose instructional DVD Weapons for the Modern Drummer is a major international hit, performed on a SABIAN set-up that included his signature Vault Fierce Ride and crashes, as well as the newly introduced 13″ Vault Fierce Hats. Said Geneal Manager George Rigney and Drum Dept. Mgr. Johnny Rago, Sam Ash, Springfield, NJ: “We’ve done our fair share of killer clinics, but this one is going in history… it was phenomenal! Jojo is amazing. His technique is unmatched, and he has a way of playing that sounds like he has 12 limbs. After playing over bunch of tracks and blowing everyone’s mind he did a 25-minute solo that was unbelievable. For the Q&A he was very informative, and after all that, he spent an hour signing merchandise and talking to the over 100 people that showed up. Overall it was phenomenal!”Commented SABIAN Events Manager Ann MacNally: “Since the release of his DVD, clinic requests for Jojo have jumped a thousand percent! Not only is he an incredible player and articulate speaker, he’s got some great magic tricks up his sleeve, and audiences around the world love him.”
