Benny Greb’s artistic expression on the drums is unmistakable. He is a “drummer’s drummer” in the truest sense – pushing the envelope of what is possible with his technical ability, musicality and inimitable style. In his continuing quest to break new ground, Benny has brought his immense talent to Vic Firth in search of The Perfect Pair™.
I’m very happy to be with Vic Firth,” states Greb. “When I started to play drums, I played Vic. It’s great to have the highest quality sticks available back in my hands! – Benny Greb
Joe Testa, Director of Artist Relations for Vic Firth Company, has known Benny professionally and personally for many years. “It is always refreshing and inspiring when an artist can stand out as a beacon of light in a very noisy and flash-driven world. Benny’s taste, artistry and approach to the instrument remind us what musicality is all about. We couldn’t be more honored to have him playing Vic and officially joining the family.”
Benny was recently recognized by the Deutsche Phono-Akademie for his outstanding musical achievements with an Echo Award for “Instrumentalist of the Year”. In addition to his resume as a performer, composer and bandleader, Benny is also a very talented and passionate educator. He shares his approach to the drums in his award-winning educational products “The Language of Drumming”, “The Art and Science of Groove” and his worldwide drum camps “The Benny Greb Master Sessions”.
“We are a company of percussionists, so whenever we get the chance to work with an artist and educator such as Benny, it’s a real treat for every one of us,” states Neil Larrivee, Director of Education and Product Development. “We look forward to some exciting collaborations!”
