BUENA PARK, Calif. — Yamaha's legendary Groove All Stars concert will entertain attendees at the MusikMesse trade show in Hamburg, Germany on March 13, 2008.

Groove All Stars
The gang's all here after the Groove All Stars performance at the NAMM show in January.
Coming off a successful sold-out performance at the Winter NAMM trade show in January, the Groove All Stars event in Germany will be hosted by longtime Yamaha artist Rick Marotta, who has recorded and toured with James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Steely Dan and Paul Simon, and also composed the theme to the television show "Everybody Loves Raymond."

The performers will showcase two new drum sets, the DTXTREME III electronic kit and the stunning PHX Phoenix kit, crafted from newfound Asian woods that impart a deep resonance to the shells.

To be backed by an accomplished house band, drummers scheduled to appear include Tommy Aldridge, Claes Antonsen, Pedro Barcelo, Tom Brechtlein, Bruno Castellucci, Dmitris Chistodoukas, Michal Dabrowka, Ralf Gustke, Wolfgang Haffner, Arthur Hnatek, Akira Jimbo, Oscar Kraal, Rick Marotta, Christian Meyer, Andy Newmark, Loic Pontieux, Volkan Oektem, John "JR" Robinson, Andrew Small, Erik Smith and Martin Valihora.
