As we have done now for around 12 years, we visit the Somme Centre (during June up until mid July) which has 6 or 7 small car parks that we use for drum practice.
We took up 3 drums to give the first night a bit of a bang! It was a beautiful summer evening not too much damp about.
I have been working with a group in Donaghadee, so a few of them, a few from Loughries and Ballyrobert drumming classes, came along to what turned out to be a great opening night.
It is all about experience and developing your own techniqu,e as well as drumming in time with other drummers - learning together.
We drummed for around 2 hours, stopping to fife a few tunes along the way!
