DREAM THEATER Keyboardist Announces 2018 Edition Of 'Jordan Rudess's Keyfest'

DREAM THEATER keyboardist Jordan Rudess announced details of his third annual Jordan Rudess's Keyfest, set to take place April 26-28 at Sweetwater Sound in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Keyfest is a three-day interactive keyboard gathering with Rudess, Tom Brislin (YES, RENAISSANCE), and Bill Laurence (SNARKY PUPPY). During the day, these three renowned keyboardists will lead workshops on essential skills, ranging from the art of soloing, keyboard technique to sound design, music apps, improvisation and more. In the evenings, they will perform intimate concerts and lead the participants in jams and master classes.

"Besides all of the learning that happens during the workshops, the best part of the past two Keyfests was just having the chance to hang out with other keyboardists, share our musical ideas and geek out together," says Rudess. "Sweetwater is the ultimate musical instrument store so it's the perfect setting for the ultimate keyboard gathering."

Thad Tegtmeyer, Sweetwater vice president, campus sales operations and artist relations, says: "Sweetwater is absolutely delighted to host Keyfest 2018. It's an honor to host Jordan Rudess, along with Tom Brislin and Bill Laurance. We're very excited to bring these amazing artists to the Sweetwater campus and we appreciate them sharing their talents with our customers."
