Memories…

Some old drum corps pictures stolen from my Facebook friends (click images to embiggen).

Northern Lights 1980


1980 Cleveland Northern Lights – I’m the multi tenor drummer on the left. This was a pre-season performance – the bongos had yet to be mounted on my drums and the shell interiors of the tenor drums on the right had yet to be painted blue. Check out the parabolic sound deflectors on the snare drums.


Bluecoats 1981

1981 Canton Bluecoats – I’m the multi tenor (quads) drummer wearing the blue and white hat (I still have the hat). Check out the stick height by the quad line – Nice!

BTW – I’m not the only person appearing in both of these pictures…
