City Music’s Drummers’ Bash
What fun! Our first Drummers Bash was great. The weather held out nicely, and City Music’s Rockin’ All Star Staff played on. Thanks to all the visiting drummers that sat in with the All Star Staff (Johnny ‘Romance’ Nickerson, Rampage Bassist Iain Perry and our own ‘ Superhero’ Andy Cummings) Special thanks to our drum staff Greg Prendergast and Chris Landry for their rhythm demos on the kit, cahons and djembes.
Lots of drummers joined our drum circle, hosted by Chris Landry, with a little help from Fitchburg Middle school’s ‘Shake, Rattle & Drum’ group. We got a taste of hand drumming in the styles of several cultures. Chris will be hosting a Drum Circle at City Music in Leominster on October 25th (Sign-up is required. Fee: $5 per person. Bring your own drum). Chris is also accepting hand percussion students Thursday afternoons – see our Leominster music store of details. Continue reading “Drummers’ Bash a Big Hit!”
