I was the flute toting band geek in high school. I participated in concert band, marching band, pep band... even band camp! One of my favorite aspects of band has always been the drum line...There is just something really cool to me about the way a series of drums ranging in pitch can create music all by themselves. Even more amazing to me is when a drummer doesn't use actual drums! Take that amazement and add it to the fascination that I find in watching a good street performer, and I am enthralled.

Take a look at this viral video filmed on a street in Boston. No actual drums. Just some buckets, a cymbal, a pan, and what looks to be an old window air conditioner (maybe?)... I was blown away! My inner band geek cried out in glee!!
