Summer sweat = fall legends. Fitzgerald Spartan Marching Band putting in the work!
Best thing about summer....MARCHING BAND! We love visiting our school’s band camps and seeing how great the students are doing. Keep it up!
We're excited to announce we're now stocking the CajonTab, by Louson Drums! The CajonTab takes playing the cajon into the realm of what the ukulele did for the guitar. The CajonTab isn't the same instrument as the cajon, but it's much more portable, and it has a great sound!
The CajonTab, just like a cajon, has a playing surface on the front and a resonating box behind it. Unlike most cajons, there is a port that allows the player to tune the pitch of the bass note, and it has a snare that you can "turn on or off".
Watch our video for the full demo! Stop by either of our two locations to check them out!
Make Music Day 2018 was a blast! Thank you to all who joined in our drum circle! We are grateful for the opportunity to play music with you all, and we're happy to have hosted this event on this amazing day of music making.
"In 1982, France’s Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners and parks, rooftops and gardens, store fronts and mountaintops.
And, unlike a typical music festival, anyone and everyone would be invited to join and play music, or host performances. The event would take place on the summer solstice, June 21, and would be called Fête De La Musique. (In French, the name means both “festival of music” and “make music!”)" - Make Music Day Website
Until next year!
Make Music Day is June 21st --- this Thursday! Join us for a community drum circle at our Madison Heights location. All are welcome, and the event is kid friendly!
Bring your own drum, or use one of our percussion instruments!
The event will take place from 5:30PM to 6:30 PM in the store lot. See you there! #iplayhere
