Testimonial

"Les is one of the most explosive drummers. His teaching concepts are developed from his extensive performances and clinic tours, plus his best selling drum books and years of playing in the big leagues with the very best from Harry James and Frank Sinatra to the Manhattan Transfer and more. Every Drummer will become inspired to be a more complete musician after a session with the Dynamic Les DeMerle."

- Louie Bellson

 

Les DeMerle plays "If I Were A Bellson" for drum great Louie Bellson at his tribute evening in 1992. Afterwards, Les is joined on stage by Steve Gadd for the rollicking swing number, "Thank You Louie!".
