Hosted by me, Seamus Evely, Drumeo Gab podcast focuses on the lives of drummers. These are conversations that are carefully prepared and finely executed, while still allowing freedom and a chance for things to develop a life of their own. I also make sure to include a wide variety of artists on the show. We go from the most in-demand drummers in the world to grassroots players with fantastic stories of their own. This show always puts the guest first to create unique listening experiences for people and to create a time capsule for both myself and listeners. Made with love.
VIP - 11/25/20 - The Beginner's Mind
“If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything, it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind, there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind, there are few.” - Shunryu Suzuki
Do I know a lot about this subject? No. However, I have some tangible thoughts about it and I wanted to explore some ideas that involve this beginner's mind concept.
Patch Mahoney - Ludwig Is Why I’m Not A Doctor
Patch and I are buddies within the community. He hit me up to hang out virtually and I recommended that we record it. So this episode is basically a chill chat between two friends. Of course, for the sake of the episode, I prepared some stuff. We ended up talking about his personal and professional background, the “fake it until you make it” concept, social media management, and the always challenging balance between perfectionism and productivity in any artistic endeavor.
VIP - 11/18/20 - Music Tells Me What To Practice
Musicians often say, "the music tells me what to play", and I agree with that one hundred percent. But what if music told us what to practice? I have often heard how confusing it is out there with the many lessons online. There is just so much to potentially learn! But if our music tastes dictated to us what we need to improve upon in order to play the music we love, maybe it would cut down the confusion. That is what today's episode is all about.
Jack Thomas - Inspiring Us Through Example
This episode is heavy and will make you feel a lot of different things. Jack's story is one that we can all learn from and it puts things into perspective. If Jack can do what he does, what is our excuse? I cannot begin to imagine what life must be like for an amputee - and to watch his drumming is so inspiring. This is a good one.
VIP - 11/11/20 - Now Execute!
I have been in many scary situations. The podcast really comes to mind when taking a plunge into something where it boils down to "sink or swim". Listen to the last two VIP's if you haven't already where I explain preparation and risk-taking. Those episodes really set the stage for this final part. In my experience, these tips and thoughts are what got me through successfully to the other side.
Stanton Moore (Galactic, Stanton Moore Trio) - Up ‘N’ Down Claiborne Avenue
This episode is something you want to hear. The way New Orleans is described during Stanton’s early years as a musician and the religious experience he had hearing Russell Batiste and what it all means to him is heartwarming and awesome listening. The playing examples throughout are a massive treat and educational. The advice from Stanton to help us become groovier drummers is amazing. This episode just rocks!

Honest down to earth podcast
I’ve been listening to the podcast for sometime now but from the beginning I felt like I know Seamus and I can relate to the passion he has for what he does. It just seems real to me no BS. I have been drumming for 31 years and I really enjoy this podcast and all it has to offer. Thanks keep it going you guys do such a great job. I highly recommend this podcast to drummers and non drummers because sometimes I try to explain something to my wife that only a drummer would understand and then I hear the same topic and issue in the podcast that really would let a non drummer or musician maybe understand what we go through kind of thing. Anyway just give it a listen and if that laugh doesn’t make you want to listen more or uplift you in any way we’ll then that’s on you 🥁🥁🥁
A great listen!
I’m loving this podcast and the way you deliver it. You are able to make all of your guests interesting in some way, regardless of their level of success and popularity! Your perspectives on life are very interesting and most importantly, sincere.
I always look forward to your weekly shows.
Keep up the great work!
Hey amazing podcast, I know he’s not well known but could u get on JD Beck he’s a really talented young drummer and I’m so interested in hearing about him. Bill Stewart would be amazing.
