Drummers Matt Greiner and Joe Longobardi (Defeater) will be performing live at Guitar Center Workshop locations across the United States. Fans will also be able to attend a Q&A and Meet and Greet session with the artists.

Greiner, who has been writing, recording and touring with August Burns Red for over a decade, has taught students worldwide, most recently participating in BandHappy on the road. He wants to educate people about the creative and technical aspects of drumming, both onstage and in the rehearsal room.

Longobardi began drumming in 2003 when he joined PaleHorse and has toured the U.S. and Europe several times. He also recorded and toured with Defeater and Dreamtigers, and often fills in for bands like Hostage Calm, The Queen Killing Kings and Smoke Signals.

The two talented drummers are offering their tips and stories for free over the course of 10 days.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
