"This is one of those shows where combing the two books (drums and percussion) can be a fun challenge. There is not a lot of down time so its pretty much all playing.

With this one I did my usual process of laying out the books side by side. I start with the drum set book, and add in the things that are easy to catch from the percussion book. I keep going until I only have mallet parts left. Then I look into how much of those I can do electronically with samples.

With this show I knew I would be juggling sticks, page turns, shakers and beaters so as I was combining the books I was also working on my layout and choreography. Thus allowing me to see what would work and what wouldn't."

"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."
