Upcoming Next Door Café Events


Greyson Nekrutman Drum Clinic
Live from the Next Door Cafe

Saturday August 6, 2022 | 1:00PM

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Greyson will be presenting a live performance along with technique instructions, Q & A sessions, and a meet & greet.

Despite an extremely isolated youth (3 years of hospital stays as a result of health struggles), New York native Greyson Nekrutman burst onto the international music scene. While in middle school in Long Island, Greyson practiced on hospital bedrails, mastering one rudiment after another with help from his teacher and watching global-level professional drummers on TV and the internet. In high school, his drumming caught national attention when he was named as one of the Top-Performing High School Jazz Musicians in the country, and was selected as the drummer for the 2019 All-National Honors Jazz Ensemble. But that’s not what launched Greyson into this own global spotlight. With a staggering quarter of a million Instagram followers his “singlehanded rejuvenation” of the Big Band/Swing drumming of the Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman era launched him into the international spotlight. His highly energetic, note-for-note / side-by-side video transcriptions of iconic drummers such as Buddy Rich, Philly Jo Jones, Louis Bellson (and many others) is filling a musical gap that was largely vacant for decades, gaining millions of viewers in the process.
