Hundreds of Drummers Rock Tacoma Woodstick…

Drummers Rock

It’s got to be a gas to be in an arena with many hundreds of drums in all varieties and sounds… eg., full trap sets, snares, toms and big bass dudes!… Never knew about this event until this week… cool man, Drum On!

Drummers Rock Tacoma

“They’re loud!” the Duvall boy shouted over his fellow musicians with a smile that stretched between his orange ear plugs.

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. I have to give the drummer in a band credit for their, forever being a part of the groove… I mean, none stop involvement gives them an important position in the group’s partnership…

  • Paul McCartney Playing Live… December 26, 2017
    “Some of that natural reverb gets initiated by the stage sound itself, as things get pretty loud up there. Only Wickens wears in-ear monitors, as the rest of the band opts for Clair R4 sidefills and old-school Showco SRM wedges.” That’s a quote from the interesting article that talks about the equipment used on Paul […]

    Jazz-rock legacy of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin (age 75 at the time of this blog post) is retiring from touring.

His departure from mainstream songs to introspective nuance has been instrumental (no pun intended) in providing for insightful creative considerations […]
  • Open mic gigs and being to loud… December 6, 2017
    Just finished talking with a tavern owner and supporter of live and live open mics… as a matter of fact if it wasn’t for this venue owner, musicians of this particular local town would need to drive another hour to reach another open mic scene. Bottom line and a wake up call for us musicians […]
  • Notes on a Piano (keyboard)… November 6, 2017
    Now, we all know that the basic 1, 4, 5 note structures (with maybe an additional transition note/chord) can create a complete song… However, when you toss in randomness of notes it might take a little more time to complete the composition.
