Hi all,

On Tuesday, June 23, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we'll be having a snare drummer's Jamboree all day!

In attendance will be Mitch Markovich, Wayne Oien (DCA champion), Kevin Donka (DCA champion), and a host of Cavaliers from the 60s and 70s.

Feel free to let me know if you'd like to attend. It will likely be from noon to 6pm but could linger longer.

In addition to drumming (mainly on pads, unfortunately, because of the neighbors!) the owner of the house we'll be in has over 10,000 sq. ft. of drums and percussion equipment in a museum of sorts attached to his home. Marimbas from the 20s and 30s, every weird percussion instrument you can think of, more than 700 (yes, 700!) concert snares, just to mention a few things. You have to see it to believe it!

Let me know if you're interested. I'm at milanoconsulting@gmail.com or 770-241-9984.

Just to see Mitch Markovitch would be worth the trip.

Wow, would really love to make that one, but unfortunately won't be able to.
Keep us updated.

Here is a quick video from our Cavaliers snare drummer's reunion last weekend (with Larry McCormick, Mitch Markovich, the first snare drummer in our history - John Bardos, and a dozen or more "vintage" drummers spanning the 1940s through the 2000s.

Also pictured is the actual drum that Frank Arsenault wore on his famous album cover and on the recording itself. It was owned by Lenny Piekarski of the Skokie Indians senior corps. Lenny passed away recently and this drum is now in the possession of a Cavalier family. We all got the chance to play on it this weekend!

Man, what a blast you guys must have had. Love the "real" drums. Thanks so much for sharing this Paul.
The Arsenault drum should be in a museum in an enclosed case. (with a guard nearby!)
