Masterclass & Event Tickets
Rhythm Intensive is a collaboration between legendary bassist Chuck Rainey and veteran drummer John Anthony Martinez whose mission it is to transfer and preserve what they have learned as rhythm section players to future generations via camps, clinics, videos, play along audio, books, and performances. Chuck and John will share their experience and expertise with students delving into the bass player and drummer’s roles in the rhythm section and other areas of intense focus.
Pioneering jazz-rock drummer and composer Danny Seraphine is a founding member of Chicago. Worldwide the iconic group has sold over 122 million albums, and, just domestically, earned 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. In 1990, after 23 years in the group, Seraphine and Chicago had a jarring parting of ways, and he left music behind for 15 years. But a call to play a benefit show for a fellow drummer pulled him out of seclusion and sparked a creative rebirth. Today, Seraphine looks forward with Sacred Ground (Street Sense), the sophomore record from his jazz-rock powerhouse group CTA—often described as “Chicago on steroids”—and he makes peace with his past with the refreshingly candid memoir Street Player: My Chicago Story (Wiley). Danny will be at holding a clinic at The Collective for the first time ever on Monday, April 11th at 7PM. Tickets are $10.00 for general admission.
