World Renowned Drummer Plays Live at Gear4music HQ

Looper Pedal World Loop station champion and Roland artist Shlomo will be playing at the Edinburgh fridge festival this august.

As part of his newvocal orchestra, Shlomo will be playing 2 nights on Radio 1’s Fun and Filth Caberet including an appearance with Police Academy’s man of 10000 effects Michael Winslow .

Schlomo’s live performance takes beat boxing to a whole new level. Recording each part separately and using just one microphone and the and BOSS RC-300 Loop station pedal, Shlomo can create huge bass line’s, grooves, beats and soundscapes to make for an exciting and completely live performance.

In 2010 Shlomo took part in the UK heats of the BOSS loopsation championships and after winning went on to the international finals where he was crowned world champion.

This year Roland UK will be hosting its 3rd national loop station competition to find the most talented and technically gifted looper to represent the UK at the World Championships in 2013.

Shlomo is but one example of the amazing sounds you can make with just 1 mic and a Looper Pedal but with inputs for other live instruments, onboard rhythm patterns and real time controllable FX, a whole world of possibility’s awaits for musicians of all styles.
