Black Fire Percussion

This stuff I really admire! Reminds me of my days as a "bander". We had one guy who could make those tom-toms sing when he wanted to... and best of all he always had a sense of humor about his rhythms. Hard to describe what I mean by humor... an example would be... we would have band practice and would practice marching to a certain beat. Then on the day of the parade we would start out and just every now and then "Animal" (that was his nickname from the dude from the muppets) would just slip in some off the wall rhythm or beat as we were marching. We would all know he did it and we all would just smile - except for the band leader ;)
