    Texas twist on the iconic monogram bass drumhead

    I recently began playing drums for a Texas country artist and designed a bass drumhead based on the iconic monogrammed heads of the swing band era. Yes my initials are J.C. but also the name of the band is the James Cook Band, which adds weight to the design

    I'm now playing drums for a Texas Country/Americana artist (much in the style of Nathaniel Rateliff) looking to book in the KC/Lawrence area. What are the best venues for this type of music? Are there DFOers active in the scene looking to share a bill late-summer into fall?

    On a whim, I threw in my DVD of 'Ben Folds Five - The Sessions at West 54th Street', a sensational performance from 1997 featuring a young, intense and determined band from North Carolina. In the 20 plus years I've owned the DVD, I've grown more impressed with drummer Darren Jessee. While very...

    OT: Insurance coverage on 'old' pickup truck?

    My father recently gifted me his 2001 Ford F-150. It's in pretty amazing condition inside and out (save for some paint scratches) and it's about to hit 70,000 miles. So, now I own a 20-year-old vehicle which overall isn't overly valuable but the paint is in better shape than my much newer cars...

    Help me identify this drum break

    I was watching this great set by DJ Jazzy Jeff and he played this drum break that sounded vaguely familiar but...I just cant place it. It's a kind of Booker T and the MGs or Lonnie Smith vibe. It occurs at about 26:54 in this set. This link should take you there

    Set up in the park and vibe a little

    We had a rare 70-degree day last week so I set up in a park downtown and played for around 45 minutes. The owner of a local arts publication came out from his office and shot some video.

    It appears I have a stock cymbal arm mount on my newly acquired Slingerland bass drum. Were these pretty much universal from brand to brand? What size (diameter?) cymbal arm should I be looking for? Does Gibraltar make a sturdy plug-n-play version?

    I landed myself a beautiful '60s Slingy 5 piece...

    Quick back story - These belonged to a fella that I jammed with quite a bit at our local country jamborees. I never saw him play the drums because I knew him as a guitar player. He passed away after a long illness and one day his widow called saying he left behind 4 drum kits and she invited me...
