Hi all, and thanks a bundle for all your king comments and votes on my 'Relax' images. Tonight though, something far from relaxation. A Drummer and Percussionist from a Band that where playing in the grounds of Rochester Castle yesterday. V2 is a Drummers Eye view of the proceedings.
Trouble is, every time I see a live Band, I want to be up there knocking hell out of a Kit of Drums Smile
There will be more to come of Musicians, including the three Women in this Band, who's name I'm yet to find out.

Hope you're all having a good Week, and managing to get out for some pictures between showers.

All the best to all,

John Smile

V1 for me. Just wish I knew what the guy in the bg is thinking. Not sure if he's really impressed or just the opposite Smile

I'm sure you would play them gently and with feeling, John!
An expression full of energy, well captured. Like V2 as well . . . . Wink

If V2 is a taste of things to come regarding the three female
band members John,then look forward to the rest.
And especially if you got pics of them between the showers that you mention !!

Thanks everyone, so glad you like these, as there's more to come.
And Sue, I think the guy in the BG is thinking " I wish He where playing the same number as me"
And Mick, sorry mate, I meant 'Rain' showers Wink
Bill, I would play with finesse and grace (While knocking hell out of the Kit) Smile
Moira, I'll make up a set of people in action with their Instruments just for youSmile
And Sarah, thanks for the offer of a bit of Skin bashing Smile

Once a drummer, always a drummer. I dated a drummer back in the early 70's - y'all are wild Wink
Great shot John.
