Sponsored by Cascio and Pearl Drums, this will be a great opportunity for fans and drummers to chat, "talk drums" and ask questions of Omar. He may also demonstrate a technique or two on the drum set.
Widely acclaimed for his versatility, technological prowess and groove, Omar Hakim is one of the most successful drummers and session men of the past thirty-five years. Omar has collaborated with dozens of prominent artists including George Benson, Lionel Richie, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Bobby McFerrin, John Scofield, Urban Knights, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Jewel, J-Lo, D’Angelo, Mariah Carey, and Madonna to name a few, and has left his imprint on hundreds of recordings including several under his own name.

Consisting of Hakim, Grammy® Award-winning pianist extraordinaire Rachel Z (Wayne Shorter, Stanley Clarke, Peter Gabriel), and bassist Solomon Dorsey (Stevie Wonder, Bobby Watson), The Trio of OZ is a unique musical experience for rock, jazz and jam lovers.
