Drums with McTuff

Got some new toys and brought them to Seamonster for a show with McTuff (Joe Doria – organ, Andy Coe – guitar). I have no idea what we’re playing in this clip. Got a Ludwig Black Beauty snare that plays beautifully with my DW maple drums, and a pile of new cymbals from the great folks at Sabian. On the stands are:

14″ HHX Evolution HH
19″ HHX Fierce Crash
22″ HH King Ride
16″ HHX Evolution O-Zone Crash

I’m excited to report that Happy Orchestra was voted 2016 Alternative Jazz Group of the Year by readers of Earshot Jazz!I’m also honored to have been nominated NW Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year. I’m proud and thankful to all the incredible musicians that contribute to the project and all of you for the support.

Happy will be back in action at the Ballard Jazz Fest, Seattle Out to Lunch Concerts, SAM Olympic Sculpture Park, Jazz in the Valley, and much more as we ramp up to the official release of the record this fall at the Earshot Jazz Festival. Thanks for the love!
