Chris Lamb at Drummers World in 1985

This photo of Chris Lamb was taken in our drum shop after he won the NY Philharmonic audition in 1985. He was exteremly exhausted after many practice hours. He came in for a visit and played every tambourine in the store. Chris is the Principal Percussionist with the orchestra and is always creative, inventive and inspiring. Once when a young rock drummer came into the store and started bragging to everyone about the band he was working with and how great they were, he glanced at Chris and asked if he was a drummer and did he work in a band. Chris replied,” Yes, I am a┬ádrummer and work with a big band but play small instruments like tambourine, triangle and maracas.”
