Nashville Drummers Jam 3

Co-founded and organzied by David Parks and Tom Hurst, the Nashville Drummers Jam brings some of Nashville's top drummers and percussionists together to raise money for worthy causes by performing some of their favorite songs, from a selected theme, on one memorable evening concert.

Nashville Drummers Jam 3, which took place at Douglas Corner Cafe (Nashville, TN) on September 9th, paid tribute to legendary studio drummer, Jeff Porcaro. The show featured 24 Nashville drummers and several percussionists, along with top-notch singers and rhythm-section musicians, performing songs representing a broad cross-section of Jeff Porcaro's career discography as a session drummer. Included was music from Eric Clapton, Jude Cole, Steely Dan, Greg Mathieson Project, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs and Toto. All of the proceeds from the Nashville Drummers Jam 3 event was distributed between two worthy causes; to Paramore drummer, Miles McPhearson, for his medical bills after suffering a serious vehicle injury, and ALS research in the name of Toto bassist, Mike Porcaro, who suffers from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

The list of performers for the Nashville Drummers Jam 3 included Mark Poiesz, Matt Billingslea, Sean Paddock, Wes Little, Ben Satterlee, Ed Toth, Tom Hurst, Ben Sesar, Rich Redmond, Jason Schmidt, Bruce Guttridge, Danny Gottlieb, Austin Curcuruto, Marcus Finnie, David Northrup, Kevin Murphy, Lee Kelley, George Lawrence, Rick Brothers, Russ Whitman, David Parks, Chuck Tilley, Will Ellis, Kent Slucher, Jim Riley, Nick Buda, Beth Gottlieb and Roy Gabelein.

The first Nashville Drummers Jam took place in the summer of 2012 and paid tribute and raise money for Kings X drummer, Jerry Gaskill, who accrued substantial medical bills from a heart attack earlier in the year — and lost his house in a hurricane. Future shows of the Nashville Drummers Jam planned to occur bi-annually with ticket sales being earmarked for the build-up of a fund for Nashville musicians in need, plus contributions to several other national charitable foundations, such as St. Jude Children’s hospital.
