This will be my rig for a weekend of varied music and bands at a re-opening party for a popular restaurant and bar some 5 hours drive away around the coast. We will start the night off just as a duo with some latin jazz and few other mellow tunes before the night gets louder with other genres .....will be there for 3 days and looking forward to the change of scene and pace ....hope to take some pics playing at the actual event ....Brady Sheoak block 12 x 7 snare - with Maple wood hoops

My band started working on some original material yesterday. And with the guitarists playing heavy riffs in drop C# tuning, it only felt right to bring out the big guns to match their sounds.
L>R
16" trans stamp hihat
20" 60's A
24" trans stamp
22" hollow block stamp
20" Zanki pang




With an unported Ambassador front head, my 20" bass drum actually put out some decent low end, and didn't sound too out of place. I'm tempted to say it sounds as good as a Rogers.

Here’s an office picture from an office afterhours. Setting up right there behind Reception.

Rehearsal for an upcoming covers gig. I really like the challenge of rehearsing with a bikini kit as it gets rid of all distractions for me, and forces me to hone in on what’s happening with a tune, be it new or old. The hardware and kick drum are on loan from guitarist’s eight-year-old son, who has lost interest as young lads are known to do. The cymbals and snare are mine.
I enjoy the abutment of the Sound Percussion inexpensive bass drum and the slightly-more-costly Black Beauty.

They both hold their own as I struggle to hold mine.

Usually I play congas and percussion with my motown band but we had a gig recently where the regular drummer wasn't able to make it, so I subbed on kit. Old beat-up Tempus kit (outside and it was cold so didn't want to take nice wood drums), Yamaha seamless copper snare, Paiste Twenty Masters hats, Sabian HH Medium-Thin crash and 22" Prototype ride. Fun gig!

Rehearsal last night at a bandmate’s house in a very period-correct 70’s Rec room with wood paneling, wall radio and intercom, bar, pool table, fireplace with lava rocks, bean bag chair.... I hope they never remodel this wonderful museum. I’m really only using one crash ride for rehearsals these days, often a 20 K Custom Dark Ride.

One member had just gotten back from recording in Nashville, and another was leaving early in the morning for a Thanksgiving flight, so the mojo was a little on the back simmer pot. Luckily there were other ways to pass the time....

Back line office at the weekly blues jam.

House drummer threw down the challenge for the jam. No toms. Kick, Snare, HH, Ride & Crash. That's it. Have to admit, sound was tight when all you can do lay down beats and no crazy ass chops. I'm still not convinced that that Ludwig Supraphonic is better than my Gretsch 4160 COB. To each his own I guess. His Istanbul Agop cymbals are nice though. I could see myself getting some of those down the road.

He had all the toms up 2 weeks ago. All his shells are to a 4/3 ratio. The kick there is a 24x16. His matchign toms for this kit are a 16x12 floor and 13x9.75 rack. It is a custom kit made by a guy in Hagerstown, MD using Keller shells. For the life of me, I cant remeber who he said it was.

I love a challenge like that. I've done a couple of sets with only hi hat, snare and BD. It definitely allowed me to get creative.

Played a great gig Saturday night, we did 3 one hour sets, and the crowd was fantastic! We are also playing a charity event Wednesday night at Mtelus (previously Metropolis) in Montreal. We’ll be doing 5 Who songs as the theme of the evening is Woodstock 1969! Our set will be:

Won’t get fooled again
5:15
Getting In Tune
Who Are You
Baba


I’ll post pics from that show as well.
