So it was a fun casual date last night covering pop and classic rock hits from the 70-80's. Being a VERY reflective room (the whole restaurant is tile, glass, steel and hard surfaces) I took my "quite" kit and cymbals so nothing new there (INDe 20", 12" & 14" with various Sabian HH's plates including15" hats, 18", 20" and 22"). What IS different is that my oh so tamed George Way Elkhart Copper snare spent then night on the floor and taking center stage was my new Summit Solid Mahogany 6X14". A wonderfully dry yet warm tone that never got out of hand volume wise... so very pleased with this new drum!!!
Well, still nothing much happening here gig-wise so I still work out of my mess of a living room/makeshift studio...Leaving the cases lying around sorta makes me feel like I'm about to go on tour. Trying to work out a kind of "if you believe in it hard enough, it will happen" angle here
Nice office for a wedding gig last Saturday evening. Too bad it was cold as... with a healthy wind chill factor adding to the brisk. Dig the tassels on the poles. Was like that all night. Looks good in pics at least.
Last night we kicked off a spring/summer concert series, north of Charlotte, NC, that we've played twice before. After cancelling it last year, I wasn't sure if it would be back, but people were definitely excited to see live music again.
