The legendary Yonrico Scott let me borrow his djembe to jam a little during his drum solo with Laura Reed’s Band.

Okay. No picture on this post, because I’m only sharing it to prove a point. Lesson learned is that no matter where you are or how you feel, you should always be ready to play on whatever you have at your disposal. AND… you’ve got to be prepared to give it your all and leave the audience wanting more. I felt very honored to be invited to sit in as s special guest, and I tried to hang in there as best I could.

If you want to see some raw footage from the Gottsrocks’ jams, click here. Please pay particular attention to the drummer on your right. You can imagine his solo without the djembe rolls, right? Let’s please keep this one to ourselves. Don’t share, but you can say you did.

Jamming @ The Shane Pruitt Band CD release party

All three of these musicians are in my top five favorites to play with of all time. I was honored when they asked me to sit in, jam and record on their second CD,

The Shane Pruitt Band “State of Grace.” Buy it now on cdbaby!

Here is a video I found in the archives of their CD release party. Oh yeah, it was a party all right! Anytime these guys get together, there are miles of smiles and dancing in the aisles.

I’m sitting in with Moyuba at the HandleArt and Music Show.

Click here to see the video. Kane Stanley, Ryan Wendel and Sven (please help me with his last name) performing as Moyuba. I don’t know what I was doing in the middle of their performance, but it was sure a lot of fun! They inspired me to dig deeper into the Caribbean and discover traditional drumming through natural blood, sweat and tears. Valdas Kotovas filmed and edited this video.
