Big Band Drummer
Sunday was kind of interesting. I was asked by the Hauer Swing Band to play the drums at a Memorial Day celebration at an Opera House. The truth is that is took about 20 minutes to "get my hands back". Some of the musicians there were very complementary about how I improved so fast. One said that the first songs sounded like a junior-high drummer trying to sit in.
By the end of the night, I was back to my old self.
My Dad and his wife were there and I could tell that the old man was very proud.
I did notice that playing the drums is boring after getting to play with harmonies and colors on the piano.
