Episode 28: The Story of "The Click Track"

Jul 01, 2020 | 0 comments


I tried something new this week. One of my favorite podcasts is "Tech Stuff" and I decided to take a stab a doing a similar format for this episode. No guests…just the mumblings and bumblings of yours truly. The last two guests on the podcast, Terry Keating (episode #26) and Gunnar Olsen (ep #27), both brought up the topic of the “click track”. It got me thinking…when did this thing start and why? Why was perfect time needed at all? Welllllll…follow me down the rabbit hole to find out about the history of the click track and hopefully, this is a format that...

Episode 27: Exporing Creativity and Translating Drum Parts for a Live Show w/ Gunnar Olsen

Jun 24, 2020 | 0 comments


Hello hello…my name is Ben Hilzinger and this is the Big Fat Snare Drum Podcast. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while now. My guest today is Gunnar Olsen. I met Gunnar on tour in 2018 when one of my bands opened up for Big Data…a band for which he plays and it was one of the most fun times I've ever had on tour. I can say without a doubt that Gunnar is one of my favorite drummers to watch and listen to. His mixture of power and approachable creativity is unmatched in my opinion. When...

Episode 26: The Bonzoleum Episode! Everything John Bonham w/ Terry Keating

  Hello hello…my name is Ben Hilzinger and this is the Big Fat Snare Drum Podcast. We took a few weeks off, but to make it up to you, we have an insanely long episode. Terry Keating is one of my favorite YouTube personalities for obvious reasons. His enthusiastic approach to hosting a show and overall education style makes my heart so happy. Check out his John Bonham page Bonzoleum. I initially wanted to have him on the show to discuss 5 hidden gems in Bonzo’s catalog that drummers might not necessarily know unless he or she is a huge Led...

Episode 25: 5 Records That Will Finally Get You Into Jazz…if you were intimidated like me and never knew where to start w/ Anthony Fung

May 27, 2020 | 0 comments


I don’t know about you, but I’ve always believed that, in order to be a better drummer, I need to listen to more jazz and more importantly…jazz drummers. You know…cause that’s what everyone tells us right? Well, I’ve found EVERY way possible to avoid getting into the genre because, quite frankly, it’s intimidating, I don’t know where to start, and I don’t know what to listen for. That's why I wanted to get my good friend and even gooder drummer, Anthony Fung, on the show to give me (and I guess you too) his choice of the 5 records to...

Today is another episode of Behind The Company w/ the baldmen themselves…Danny and Mike of Baldman Percussion…creators of The Junk Hat. Big Fat Snare Drum shared a booth with the boys at Winter NAMM 2020 and it was a pleasure getting to know these two goofballs so I’m happy to have them on the show to talk about the story of how they met, the humble beginnings of The Junk Hat, and their plans for the future. I had a lot of fun with this one. Enjoy! Today’s episode is brought to you by Clearsound Baffles. Clearsound Baffles are a transparent,...
