    Where you are spending your time

    Well I figured since I’m house bound for a while, why not try to setup three kits in my one tiny practice space in the corner of my basement. Gives me some variety I guess to keep things a little less monotonous.

    Have you had any gigs cancelled?

    Most of the live music venues around me are closed or in the process. Two studio bookings are up in the air and waiting for rescheduling. March/April calendars have been cleaned out.

    Hey all, been a member throughout the various iterations of the forum over many years (even over at the defunct cymbalholic). I haven't been all that active, generally just reading and trying to glean information when I can. With all the changes coming/in progress I figured this would as good...
