The Year of The Tiger!

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of the Tiger began on February 14th, 2010 – Valentine’s Day. So I guess this is my year! Cool! I plan on making the best of it. Click on the video above to see what the Tiger has to say! I’ll wait…

Let’s see, I’ve just opened a new online drum shop. You’ll still find it at the old location DrummersWishList.com but it’s running under a new host that seems to be even better than the last one. The one thing that hasn’t changed is that I’m still offering the lowest prices on the best drum gear on the Web and am featuring the all new Axis A21 Laser Double Pedal. Check it out!

And to further celebrate the grand re-opening of my Online Shop, I’ve got some special one-time deals that are good only while supplies last. And if you have ever purchased anything from my online shop, you will be receiving a coupon good for a discount on your next purchase from my new online shop as my way to thank you for your support!

On the gig front, I will be appearing twice New Jersey next month on March 26 in South Orange and on March 27 in Butler. You’ll find more details in this issue so please check it out and if you do make it to a gig, don’t forget to say Hey!

Also coming up on February 28th you won’t want to miss five world-class drummers who will be performing at Glenn Weber’s New Jersey School of Percussion for Haiti Relief. Please try to make it there, if you can. And tell them Tiger Bill sent you!

Enjoy the rest of the issue and enjoy the rest of the year of the Tiger!

Until next time – Have Fun, Stay Well, and Stay Loose!
