Rhythm! After Hours with Drumming Legend Kenny Aronoff Next Wednesday, September 18th

Rhythm! After Hours with Drumming Legend Kenny Aronoff Next Wednesday, September 18th

Welcome back to the Chops blog. This week, we wanted to let you know about a special event happening at the Rhythm! Discover Center in downtown Indy next week. Kenny Aronoff will be in town for a performance and Q&A session. Kenny is one of the most recorded drummers in rock history, and his resume is loaded with legendary recording artists. To be able to sit and ask a musician of this caliber a question or two in such a laid-back atmosphere is a chance that will not come very often.

This event is 21 and over only, and the ticket price is $30. The price includes your admission into the museum and two free beers from great local brewery, Sun King (bonus!)

To see the schedule for the evening, please go to rhythmdiscoverycenter.org/rhythm-after-hours. The time for this event is 6 pm – 9 pm. Kenny will begin his portion of the evening around 6:45 pm. To purchase your ticket for the event, please go to this link: https://rhythmdiscoverycenter.myshopify.com/products/after-hours

I will be there, so I hope to see you there as well!
