My other Maine band was the “Different Drummers Joyful Hearts Club Band.” It was my drum circle’s performance troupe. We would take the coolest pieces of music that occurred in the drum circle and perform it on stage. We played festivals, parades, concert halls, private parties, coffee houses, you-name-it!
One of my favorite pieces we did was “The Song For Afghanistan” written by our harpist, Daryne Rockett. We performed it for the last time at our 2013 Farewell Circle before my wife and I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
