Mike Mangini has successfully applied his Rhythm Knowledge learning method to all styles of music, from classical & jazz to speed metal. He has consistently developed both the melodic and rhythmic sides of his musical personality. He has documented his command of these styles on recordings, with Internationally Renown and Multi Platinum Selling bands, as a multi-time Grammy nominee, as the featured clinician at most every drum festival in the world, and as a full-time faculty member at Berklee College of Music along with being named to their Educational Committee and as Advisor to the Percussion students. Mike's latest achievement was his successful audition to become the new, official drummer for progressive-metal's reigning kings, Dream Theater.
He is both teacher and student. He has been performing since the age of 4 and studying music since age 5. He studied percussion privately with Walter Tokarczyk (Public School System, Waltham, MA), from age 10 through 18. Since 1987 he has given private instruction to drummers, guitarists, and pianists. Michael completed his first drum clinic tour in 1996, and since then he has traveled the world as a clinician selling out venues in over 40 countries. The principles on which he based his extraordinary style can be found in his publications entitled Rhythm Knowledge Volumes I and II.
His numerous awards include: Official Multi Category W.F.D. World's Fastest Drummer, Boston's Best Drummer/Rhythm Section; NAJE All Eastern United States Percussionist - First Chair; All Massachusetts Jazz Band Drummer - First Chair; All Massachusetts Concert Band Percussionist - First Chair; All Massachusetts (N.E. District) Jazz Band Drummer - First Chair; Concert Band Percussionist (N.E. District) First Chair., and he appears in Drum Magazine Reader's Polls yearly.

1998 Gavin played a stadium tour with Baglioni again playing to enormous crowds in venues like the Olympic Stadium in Rome (in front of 92,000 people) San Siro in Milan (85,000) and so on around the football stadiums of Italy.
In 2000 Gavin became musical director of UK garage legends Artful Dodger and around this time started to work with the highly acclaimed soul artist Lewis Taylor. Afterwards Gavin played tours with Go West and Lisa Stansfield.
in early 2002 Gavin was invited to join the art rock band Porcupine Tree and has played with them ever since - recording the albums In Absentia (2002) and Deadwing (2005) and making several tours of the USA and Europe.
Gavin has written two educational drum methods - the award winning Rhythmic Illusions and Rhythmic Perspectives and two DVD's Rhythmic Visions and Rhythmic Horizons.
Drummer Thomas Holmen is a very busy guy. As guardian of the groove for Danish pop-rock sensations Infernal, Holmen spends his days on the road, cranking a powerful backbeat for one of Denmark’s most popular bands. “Infernal is a very popular live act because of the energy and the performance and the mix between acoustic and electronic sounds,” says Holmen. “We play almost every festival in Denmark during the summer months, as well as gigs in Germany, Poland, UK, and other parts of Scandinavia. We do some club gigs in Italy and France, and we’re shooting videos in Paris, New York, and Miami.” Of course, Holmen doesn’t sit idle between tours; he stays busy on other projects and maintains a full schedule of students and drum clinics across Denmark. He played a tour last summer with DJ Kato, one of Denmark’s most well-known DJs, and recently did some tracks with Snoop Dogg.
