...with the Carlos Montoya band and what a great, solid, player. The band was fantastic. The venue was small and intimate, and the sound system was good. Rena's playing was incredibly tasteful, and his kit sounded fantastic. Sakae kit with Yamaha signature <someone> COB snare, and Zildjian cymbals (no clue what series). He obviously pays attention to his equipment and his sound and is a drummer that I really admire. I just hadn't seen his name come up, but he deserves some recognition.
