Non-gigging Bands?

Anyone involved in non-gigging projects? Are there options for people who want to play with others in a goal-oriented way but without the goal being to play out?

Another Catalina Club Jazz Thread: Orange Sparkle

Some online stores are listing "orange sparkle" as a new wrap for the Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz kits. Does anyone have pictures and/or know when these are going to be out?

Thanks!!

Re: I beat the crap out of my drums/cymbals and I'm proud of it:)

I never said that. But I would, because in the context of this discussion it has been used as a figure of speech.

Re: Drummers who play in bedrooms, garages, attics, and small stages!

Re: Using the Fulcrum of Sticks?

Re: Single pedal technique

Matt, can you direct us to the posts and/or articles? I was let down that in your long post you didn't provide an alternative to Pat's suggestion.
