DAVID JONES - DRUMS AND BEYOND

7PM TUESDAY 7 MAY 2019 

For one night only, The Conservatorium of Music in partnership with The Lock Up, are excited to present this special gig which features David Jones performing alongside some of Newcastle's finest musicians.  

To see David Jones in action is to witness a wizard weaving spells, a master at work achieving the seemingly impossible. His arms move in fluid Tai-Chi-like motions, his face is relaxed and transmitting his joy to the audience, and if you closed your eyes, you would swear there were at least 2 drummers on stage. 

David is often described both here and abroad as being one of the most innovative and musical drummers in the world. His mesmerising drum solos are dramatic, humorous, surprising and powerful.  

This gig is for all music fans but for lovers of drums and percussion: do not miss this rare opportunity to witness David performing live in one of Newcastle's most unique and creative spaces. 

Tickets are $20 and are available HERE.  


ABOUT DAVID JONES 

David is often described both here and abroad as being one of the most innovative and musical drummers in the world. His mesmerising drum solos are dramatic, humorous, surprising and powerful. In the hands (and feet) of David Jones, the drum kit comes alive as a mini-orchestra, vaudeville act, rhythmic explosion and hypnotic trance-inducer, all in one. 

Using sticks, brushes, mallets, fingers, elbows, violin bow, dish-mops, toys, brooms and any percussion he can lay his hands on, David creates a universe of sounds, textures and rhythms that take you through different cultures, ages, moods and styles.
