    Trio gig at a club tonight, was depping and hadn't met the other guys, but turned out to be a great evening.

    Over the weekend I played at the 3rd annual Bobby Blue Bland Day in Barretville, Tennessee, his hometown. It's located in the extreme northeast part of Shelby County which is also home to Memphis. Obviously the area is rich in musical history. The hotel where we stayed was a little over a 10 minute commute but was located in the next county to the east, Tifton County. (see the sign in the photo)
    Normally I would take a 4 piece set up for a blues gig. In a lot of the live BBB video I watched to prep for this thing one drummer kept popping up who played a 6 piece Pearl kit with a burst finish. I don't often get to play out with a 6 piece set up so for s&g's I brought my 10 inch and 16 inch toms. I have to admit it was fun!

    Nice kit. Don't see that combination of "power toms" too often anymore.

    Nice kit. I remember you posting your MLX in Liquid Amber in The Zone on Sabian's website.

    Yep, I tour this baby everywhere, have got many other toys that I don't use on this particular gig though. (Bell tree, timpani, 3rd conga, electronics, glockenspiel etc., plus all of the small stuff, it's already a 7 shaker and 4 tambourine gig, though I have a few more in other cases )

    I'm also a percussionist and have a very nice rig with a lot of drums and percussion.

    However, most of the gigs I play now are at churches where drum shields and guide tracks have become so popular that they don't want to use live percussion any longer.

    I miss the old days when, even if I wasn't scheduled to play, I could show up with the percussion at almost any friend's gig and they were happy to have the added "colors" on stage.

    Yes, they are indeed, with this show, Islands in the Stream, which is working continually, all theatre gigs, and then a new show starting later this year, which is a tribute to Cyndi Lauper. Looking forward to that one.
