Goodbye to Summer!

hdrally

Well, it’s been a great Summer for playing shows (weird weather not withstanding) but September in Wisconsin basically means it’s time to start booking shows indoors.

It also means it’s time to do some recording! ย I can’t wait to line up some studio time and test out all of the cool new gear I’ve been working with this year. ย Especially Crescent Cymbals and Aquarian Drumheads, both of which have been more and more impressive every time I’ve used them. ย  (Thanks Chris Brady and Michael Vosbein!)

Here’s a link to a little flyover from my most recent show with The Dave Fitzpatrick Band – it’s a quick shot of what I’m using and loving right now: LLRLRR on Instagram

Let’s Play Some Shows!

Well now – this is more like it!

Finally shaking off the dust (and the endless winter) and getting back to playing some drums – sunshine on my cymbals and various festival foods/regional beers in my tummy. I’m not taking my talents to South Beach but I am working with some wonderful new folks, having a lot of fun learning new songs and reconnecting with old ones.
