Going along with the percussion theme, my mom raised us around different types of music. We grew an appreciation for different styles and genres. So being the [self-entitled] Azonto queen that I am, I couldn’t help but be drawn to the drumming ministry as they played during my church‘s family and friends weekend.
If you missed it, you missed it. Why weren’t you there at Music in the Park? Kebbi Williams Presents Music in the Park was, as it was last year, amazing. Being a former violinist and self-taught percussionist, I’m partial to the orchestra. Sigh. This year I have a new favorite – Jalen Townser (drums) and Stanley Cunningham (piano). I was able to experience live music in my element, West End. Live music is the best music. You remember how your grandmother rocked to the choir in church and just waved her hand. Or maybe your grandmother played the tambourine…or the drums. CDs are cool but they have a totally different vibe than concerts.
So the next time you pop open the cd case, think about getting the live experience. Take the lass out for a night out on the town. She will enjoy it and so will you. Below are two spots to enjoy live music. So “put your Gucci watch on and let’s rock”!
