"This show used mostly drum set and auxiliary percussion with some bell parts added for certain scenes. The Musical Director asked for a toy bells feel so I got the standard student model bell set and used hard brass mallets to get the sound he wanted.

The floor tom was only used for timpani like rolls and in 'Bombie Samba', so I tuned it low to sound like a Brazilian surdo. The auxiliary instruments were two LP Jam Blocks, cowbell, ratchet, and a triangle with The Miller Machine!"

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
