2016 Show Follow-up:

A note from Rob Cook: This year we announced a strategic partnership with Classic Drummer Hall of Fame. I'd like to thank Steve Bryant and his great staff for all they have done for the show already: promotional assistance, site design, content production for the show's digital signage and much more. Watch for more CDHOF involvement in 2017!
