    Rich, doesn't matter about having another drummer, come out anyway if you're up for it. You guys can trade off on drum set and alternate percussion (congas, had percussion).

    It appears that you could use a drummer tomorrow. I am going to try to make it, but presently having a bad time with a tooth. If I don't update this with a message late tomorrow afternoon, I will be there. If another drummer signs up to come out tomorrow I will skip it this time.

    Need a drummer! With Barry on bass I can play medium swing on drums but that's all! And no fills.

    • Wesley C.

      You mean we need someone who can only play fills to balance it out

    Come on out! Doesn't matter how many of an instrument we have. There is plenty of music to go around.

    Amp provided unless you want to bring your own.

    Are there a lot of guitar players? Should I bring an amp?

    We have a drummer. Orlando will be there. Other drummers welcome of course.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
