DREW McKEON-LIVE WITH MICHAEL BOLTON-1.5 STEEL--4 X 15~

It was so great to see my friend, and supporter of Beier Drums the other night at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois: Drew McKeon. Drew has been behind the kit for Michael Bolton for some time, and it has been quite some time as well since I last got to see him and this band live. He has had the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 on the road with him for two years, and plays it live every single show. That is something that really means a lot to me here. Not only does he love it, he told me the entire band does as well...Including the FOH engineer. This time around I got to see Drew live with his new 1.5 Steel--4 x 15. He played it for the entire show, and the response from him is that he truly thought it was awesome. That drum has a huge bottom end, and not just for a 4" depth drum. It is comparable to a lot of 8" drums. This drum...Is not a "Piccolo". (Sound sample from sound check is on the Audio page). Great to see you Drew & this always unbelievable band...I really appreciate you taking time out as always. Looking forward to further updates from you on the new drum....
