Keyboardist/Multi-Instrumentalist extraordinaire, JORDAN RUDESS, member of platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated band, DREAM THEATER, has announced details for his fourth annual JORDAN RUDESS KEYFEST, which will be held May 30 – June 1 at SWEETWATER SOUND in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Feat. Special Guests David Rosenthal (BILLY JOEL, CYNDI LAUPER, RAINBOW) and Latin Jazz Pianist Otmaro Ruiz (JOHN MCLAUGHLIN, JOHN PATITUCCI).
KeyFest is a 3 – day interactive keyboard gathering with Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater and guest artists, David Rosenthal and Otmaro Ruiz. During the day, these 3 renown keyboardists will lead workshops on essential skills ranging from the art of soloing, keyboard technique, sound design, music apps, improvisation and more. In the evenings, they will perform intimate concerts and lead the participants in jams and master classes. In addition to interactive experiences with guest artists, KeyFest also offers intensive clinics with keyboard and software manufacturers.
“Besides all of the learning that happens during the workshops, the best part of the past three KeyFests was just having the chance to hang out with other keyboardists, share our musical ideas and geek out together. Sweetwater is the ultimate musical instrument store so it’s the perfect setting for the ultimate keyboard gathering”, says Rudess.
