    Default Drummer sticks needed?

    Together with an order I just took delivery off, I got a free package of 12 pairs of wooden drum sticks... like that's what a steel guitarist was hoping for .
    I am no drummer boy, so I don't have much use for them, except maybe using them as dowels.

    Anyway, if somebody knows of some local kid on track to become the next Gene Kruppa or Tito Puente, who might be in need for drum sticks, I'll make them available... 4 FREE too.

    Default I know a guy

    PM me if you wanna give them to local musician on the N.Coast. He's not Dominican if that is a criterium, but he's a needy musician. Any public school could also use them on 27 de febrero!

    Next time the kids drum in a procession in PP, JD, have a look at the state of their drumsticks and if they look like they need replacing........you can oblige. Sure to bring a smile to happy faces!

    I am not too much a fan of processions and marching bands going "bam-bam".
    However, I'd gladly have some of them have the sticks if I don't find a or some musicians (making real music) who could use them to a better end.

    Not MY words. I don't have any such ill feelings for these kids whom are sent out to march "bam-bam". After all, they are sent out to do so, misguidedly told that it is their patriotic duty.
