Any weird or spooky drum/music-related stories out there?

ooooh.. This is right up my alley.

the old band room here at the school I teach at was haunted. I had 3 different personal experiences. Two of them happened around a marimba that was donated to the school in honor of one of my drum students who died suddenly of leukemia when he was a junior. I know it was him coming back to check on us.

I firmly believe in the paranormal b/c I have had over 10 personal experiences starting from the age of 2 on. Most were in my tween and early 20's years. I grew up in a family of "mystics". My mom was/is super into the occult, astral projection and meditation in the 70's. Her best friend is a medium, and always said that I have "abilities". I have done my own studies of metaphysics since 7th grade

total "ghost" nerd here

Back at my old duplex my guitar player and I were jamming in the basement. Out of the corner of our eyes we spotted a little white girl in brown hair in a white dress at the bottom of the stairs, but when we turned to look there was nothing there.

This house was originally purchase by my mother from a Haitian priest in one of the rougher sides of town at the time. I think was about 13 when we moved in there and I believe the house was the issue to a lot of my families turmoil.

My sister battling with husbands and drugs. My mother getting sick with brain cancer and passing away. Me falling into DKA and becoming a type one diabetic at a late age of 23-24.

Shortly after moving out of the house my life seemed to drastically get better it seemed.

I went back to visit the house a few years after it had been foreclosed upon, and sneaking in through an unlocked window in the back. The house had a cold draft and eeriness about it. It made my skin scrawl.

OK so here is something scary. I ran a blues and rock jam for a couple of years. Of course we used my drum set. One time a drummer showed up and he was playing wild and loud. Showing off for his girlfriend and her friends. He was using the drum sticks that I supplied for those drummers who are too dumb to bring their own sticks. When I got back up to my drums to play I found this. OMG!!!

I was in Army basic training, Ft Jakson S.C., on the rifle range when a Sgt comes up and asks if my name is Moody.
Yes Sgt Do you play drums? Yes Sgt
Turn in your weapon, ammo and brass and come with me. We go to a small building with a drum set and 2 guys playing bass and guitar. For the next hour we play James Brown songs. Then I'm sent back to my Company.
I don't know how they got my name, I avoided playing a marching drum, which was a pain even though someone else had to carry your rifle.

Christ, I really did think that the end of this story would end….

“…..Later on I was told the band I played with had died 50 years earlier” or something

I was absolutely gripped!!

I don't have any ghost stories, but recently have acquired strange taste and changes in my diet. It's sort of freaking me out -I may becoming a foodie. I'm thinking of trying that "Carnivore diet" since my taste have been running in that general range. I may call a dietician or a doctor and ask them what's up-why do I have these cravings.

After my former band split, the keyboardist decided to erase all our recordings we uploaded on Google Drive for more than a year. Since I was the owner of it, I've done backups constantly so I recovered everything the next day. I've never heard of that guy again. He was a very calm, intelligent and funny guy but he was obviously crazy and not a great keyboardist to be honest.

Before moving to our forever home, my family lived in a haunted duplex. Doors would open/close, strange noises coming from weird places, etc. Nothing malevolent, just off putting. Even the dogs were effected by it at times.

There was a bonus room upstairs that became my music room. That room was weird. Lights would turn on and off, hanging speaker cables would seem to dance along with my drumming. Sometimes I would go upstairs and get a very creepy feeling like the room didnt want me there and I wanted to go back downstairs. Again, nothing malevolent.

I found out about 2 years in that a little girl had died in the building like 20 years earlier. My guess is she still lives there.

So another non music related one

Recently my daughter was out in a garden with her Nan and Mum, apparently she looked back into the house we were at and pointed to one of the windows and said “there’s a man in there”

Then a few hours later inside the house she suddenly looked behind her, looked up and said “Hi” to absolutely no one.

(EDIT: There was a snare drum in the room - not related to the story whatsoever and I’m just doing this to please Al)

Now when I go to that house I take my proton pack just in case.

When we bought the house were told the only owner died in Hospital by the estate agents but now I’m not so sure…..

I have to go there on my own once a week so if I don’t post on here for a while I’ve obviously been taken to the shadow realm.
