Posted by Peter Knudson on

Time flies when you're having fun! It's Spring in Colorado and I, for one, am ready for it. Are you?

It's festival time!! 

Come see our booth and hang out with us at the UNC Jazz Fest April 20-22 which is at the UNC (University of Northern Colorado) campus in Greeley, Colorado. I'll have all kinds of fun products from local makers to big manufacturers. Locally, I will have snare  drums from Shu Shu Gah Drums, made in Loveland, Colorado. Rob Veitch is the maker. These are solid steam bent or stave shell drums which sound amazing! Another small maker I will be featuring is Reverie Drum CO. out of Ashville, North Carolina. Timothy Roberts makes drums, cymbals and small stackers and effects. I will have the small stacks and effects on display. 

April 28-29 is FOCOMX 2023!! 300 plus bands will invade Ft Collins April 28-29 and bring music to every corner of Downtown. If you've never been to one then do it! It's a great community event that brings smiles to so many people and builds up our musical family. I will be performing the 28th with the Lindsey O'Brien band at 3:30 pm at New Belgium Brewery, April 29 at Washington's with Cary Morin and Ghost Dog at 6:15 pm and also April 29 with Salsa Forte at the Colorado Room at 9:15.  Sunday the 30, my very own trio will be performing at the Crown Pub from 7-10 playing whatever the hell we want but mainly in a jazz-like style. Andrew Vogt and Jo Asker will be my accomplices. Great company! 

I would love for you to discover Drums West drum shop so come on in and see what I have to offer. You won't be disappointed! Take care of each other and drum on!
