Re: Time For Some Fun

Ah yes, Joe Morello!

Re: Time For Some Fun

Re: Anyone still planning on going to the Chicago Drum Show?

Fortunately, our lockdown won't be to drastic. You can still go for a jog, but not in a group of 5, or shoot hoops by yourself, but not a full court game with 10 guys and no gatherings in the park...

Re: Anyone still planning on going to the Chicago Drum Show?

I'd be surprised if that show would still go on.

Re: Premier APK

I don't know much about Premier, but for the price of a decent dinner for 2, it looks like you can have a very nice looking kit in great sizes. Even decent MIJs are generally going for more than that...
