that thing they do

Terri says, "The percussion stuff sounds like a lot of fun! Maybe you can get video of them sometime and share it with your blog fans?"

I did manage to get an official copy of their show from last week.   It's shot from far enough away to see and hear what everyone's doing without identifying any individual students.  There's a bit of background chatter that I'm guessing is from someone near the camera watching a basketball game?? Making our own videos is frowned upon because of privacy rules and such - although I've seen plenty of cameras rolling in the audience.

Each performance lasts six minutes.  If they go even one second over, they're docked points.  Then there's a mad scramble to haul everything out of the way for the next group.  It's nice for spectators, not much downtime!

Anyhoo, I edited the video down to three minutes to give the gist of the thing.

Take the floor!

Aww! Thanks for sharing. They look and sound terrific! I loved watching Meego play. He really gets into it. :)

That WAS fun! Thanks for making it happen! (And you managed to mimic the movie title of one of the most fun movies ever!)

It's funny ... I was thinking how when my kids were of the age to be introduced to band opportunities in school, none of the parents really wanted their kids to play drums ... all the noise and stuff! But once the players are all grown up and talented, percussion is one of the things we all find to be the coolest!

Meego's enjoying his rocker status, being all about that bass, 'bout that bass...

So true! It used to be, "Drums? Oh god, no!" Then it became all "Drums? Way cool!"
