On Sunday, July 13th, I’ll play with double-breasted at the Music Den’s 30th Anniversary celebration.
The Music Den has had quite an influence on my musical upbringing. One of the owners was actually my first elementary music teacher. I remember when he left the teaching position to devote himself to the Music Den store full time. Later, as I pieced together my first drum set, I bought many pieces from the Music Den. I bought my first electric guitar there. Most importantly, I took my first lessons on drum set there, studying with John Hvasta. He taught me so many skills that I still apply to my playing today.
It’s hard to believe that the store has been open for 30 years, but I’m happy to help them celebrate and perform a set with double-breasted.
Of course, the celebration is open to the public… I hope to see you there!
