Jordan will be performing on a vast arsenal of keyboards as well as his Billboard Award-winning music creation iPad app, MorphWiz.
Marco Minnemann (http://marcominnemann.com) is revered as one of the most gifted, innovative, and dynamic drummers in the world. His total command of four-way independence is unequaled, and his over-the-top drumming creations are simply mind-boggling. Minnemann’s unusual drum kit, which includes an array of multiple foot pedals, Gong drum, electronics and unique cymbal configurations, combined with his amazingly extreme interdependence skills, has propelled him to superstar status. He is the winner of numerous awards for his educational drum books and videos and was recently featured on the cover of the prestigious, Modern Drummer Magazine.
Renowned guitar virtuoso, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer, Daniel Jakubovic, will join Rudess/Minneman. Daniel is the singer, lead guitarist, and principal songwriter for the band Against The Wall.
