Last Friday night found me at an underground club in Temperance, Michigan, where I heard John Meilink play. John is the author of The Distracted Drummer: "Thank you, Toledo, and Good Night" - you can read my review here, as it amuses you to do so. While I was there I took a video of John (he's called JD - I don't know why, and neither does anyone else) hitting stuff with a piece of wood in each hand. Due to the limitations of the Blogger platform I'm unable to include the video, but here are a few stills I took.

I had a great time and was invited back, an invitation I definitely will take advantage of in the weeks to come.
My second party was on Saturday night at Toledo Ballroom. I taught the group class at 7:00, then stayed for the dance party from 8:00 until 11:00. I had a great time, but I think I overdid it a little. Or a lot, because the next day I was completely exhausted, and I still haven't really recovered. But it was worth it.

Me, I'm going to take it easy today and rest up for the weekend.
