Default Re: Olympia Theater, Miami, Florida 1954

My father used to tuck his own calfskin heads on wooden rims. He used to soak them in the bath tub until they were pliable. Notice the heater outlet on the bass drum? He used these drums to play outside for public dances in band shells in Miami Beach. On a humid night, the heaters were connected to give the heads some response.
