    Any Washboard players here ?

    I played washboard for a few tunes with a dixieland band years ago and more recently on some Bluegrass tunes with a country band.

    OT. How Aliens lost me a gig .....

    The current depressed scene allows restaurant gigs with solo/duo acts if provisions are made for spread seating and I had a gig booked for tomorrow. However the pianist is both a conspiracy nut and follower of any alien site and he posted a weird meme on Facebook that I responded to politely but...

    Is a 4 piece kit just being 'lazy" ?

    I saw a comment on a drummer's YouTube video which read "Just a 4 piece ? That's being lazy !!". Naturally being a 4-piece kit player and long favoring such kits, I disagree totally. Any comments ?

    Season's Greetings checked by my lawyer :)

    I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my Drum Forum friends, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I consulted my lawyers yesterday, and on their advice I wish to say the following (with no apologies to the lawyers amongst...

    Gigs From Hell

    I am sure we all have them but my favorite is this .....a big city hotel had a very ambitious New Year's Eve event in their spacious and lofty lobby with a 6 tiered stage where a 16 piece band and multiple singers were to be the main event. I was booked to do a 90 minute warm up show in a jazz...

    A Buddy Story

    Yesterday I was reminded by another long term expat resident here of the time Buddy Rich and his band played in Bangkok no doubt after visiting troops in Vietnam (?). It must have been late 1960's or early 1970's. I went to the large night club of the time that night and have vivid memories of a...

    Have played bikini kits but very often just play snare drum and brushes behind a latin guitarist or a jazz pianist who has a great bass line left hand. Tonight is just such an occasion for a monthly gathering of about 20 local musicians from various genres at a big house party. The house has an...

    HI. I am back

    I was quite regular here some time back then had all kinds of issues with log-in and neglected to fix that until until just now. A few things have happened since I have been away but most recent is acquiring what is likely (?) my last ever kit ... a custom "vintage" kit with some modern...

    Funky Jungle Kit

    On Saturday, one regular jazz gig venue provided their own drums which saved some gear hauling... a Sonor 3007 Jungle kit to which I added my own 14 x 8 block snare and my ride cymbals. Nice little kit !!
