What the Pros Say

“Mark gave a wonderful performance, displaying incredible ideas on double bass playing and doing exercises I could only wish I could do with my hands!”Vince Dunn – The Vince Dunn Orchestra

“Opening act for the LDC on 10th March 2016 – Mr Mark Smith and his feet of fire. Mark opened the show with the specific intent of blowing us all away! As a rock/metal drummer he certainly did that with a mind-frazzling display of double bass pedal work. We even got a taste of his tuition skills. Good show fella”. Andrew Harbron – ADH photography.

“Mark delivered a really interesting clinic and his double bass drum work was epic” Colin Woolway – Drumsense/Clinician

“A double bass drum magician” Siemy Di – David Bowie/Independent/Clinician
