"As I was the only percussionist I needed to cover both percussion 1, and 2, books. This was a challenge so compromises needed to be made. Three triangle parts were played on one triangle, crotale parts were played on the glockenspiel, finger cymbal parts were played on a triangle.

The use of electronics (malletKAT and Roland Octapad) really helped make it possible to cover most of the cues.

This was an extremely fun show to play. The music is well written and the percussion is so integral to the show."

"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."
