Drummers Rock Tacoma

The 2013 Woodstick Big Beat, in its 11th year, has been held in Tacoma some years, farther north in others.

It set the world record for the most drummers playing at once, with 533 in 2005 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle (Qwest Field at the time). A British charity broke that record last year when 798 drummers gathered in Manchester, England…

Drummer in the Band…

Would you consider the drummer the backbone of the band? Obviously, these statements could be applied to all instruments, but it is arguably more of a truism (in general) when applied to drummers.

  • Kindergartners Learn Blues From Conan O’Brien… June 21, 2017
    Have to admit (subjectively) that this gathering of young minds with Conan O’Brien is progressively fun. An interesting way to introduce kids to music, in this instance… the Blues. In any case, it’s worth a quick watch to get your subjective opinion. Jam On! – Ron (credit via: society of rock .com) “I Can’t Stop […]
