It’s all over for another year… but finally a few words of thanks.

ian matthews SDF 2013

And so the ringing in our ears begins to fade and we can look back at the Scottish Drum Fair 2013 and have time to take it all in and thank everyone who made it happen.

Our first vote of thanks must go to our incredible performers Ian Matthews, Damon Wilson, Stu Brown and Simon Grant and the lads and lassies from Preston Lodge High School. Your performances were inspiring as well as entertaining. Hopefully some of the young drummers in the audience will take your advice to heart and become the stars of Scottish Drum Fair 2033.

Jim McDermott. Not only one of Scotland’s finest drummers he is also one of Scotland’s finest hosts. He took all of the behind the scenes chaos in his stride and made the Scottish Drum Fair look good. Legend!

Big thanks to Allan McFarlane, artist liaison, chauffeur and the guy who put us in contact with both Ian and Damon in the first place. We appreciate everything you do for us mate. A special thanks also to Laurie Jenkins. It’s not quite Wembley but we hope you had a good time.

The dD Drums Crew, both old and new! Stu, Ali, Sam, Matthew and Kyle – You guys went above and beyond the call of duty on Sunday. We actually couldn’t have done it without you. You were all great! Thanks also to Robbie Lesiuk for capturing the event on camera and video. Cheers bro.

Ronnie and Senga and the catering crew, Lindsay, Emma, Kathleen and Allyson for for manning the ticket desk adding some good looks to the event and to The Cookie Queens Ella and Grace. The Rock the Talkers for supporting the local music scene and Bruce Hotchkies for his amazing last minute printing abilities and his unending support. Thanks Babes!

The Ward Steedsy Crew for being very sound sound blokes and making the whole thing sound amazing yet again. The Falkirk Community Trust team at St. Mungo’s and Frazer for his technical support, patience and various bits of cable.

To all of our Drumble Salers and Kits Oot Heroes… keep all of those kits polished up boys! They looked stunning!

To all of our trade buddies, Keith Keough from Premier, John, Bruce and Dean from the D’Addario / Evans Crew, Alex and the Amedia Cymbals team, Dave Nuttall from Jalapeno Drums (hope your car is okay), Kevin and the pedaltastic Duallist posse, the wonderful Dave Eyre from Hardcase, Fraser Murray (and his invaluable gong), the very lovely Bullet and Kitch boys, Scott Currie Percussion and Steve Broadfoot and his much needed on the day Lug Plugs. A special thanks to Craig at Music Shipping for his invaluable help and support.

Thanks to Andy from Sabian, Julez from DW Drums and Iestyn from Gretsch for supporting your fantastic artists so well and also supporting the Scottish Drum Fair.

Thanks to Tim Holt from phatfotos.co.uk and Malcolm Stoney for kindly letting us use their images in our marketing campaign.

Thanks to our mate Phil Ragsdell for bringing his Roving Roland project to Falkirk – please support him and his charity work if you see him Roving about.

Most of all we have to thank YOU, the Scottish drumming public who turned out once again to support The Scottish Drum Fair and in doing so support the Scottish Drumming Community…to misquote Bryan Adams : “Everything we do, we do it for you”

Now go and have a bit of Quiet Time and we’ll do it all again next year!
