The Big Beat


Senior Member
I don't know if anyone here had a chance to go, surely so. This was my first experience with The Big Beat. I went to the Tulsa venue held at an arena at Tulsa Union HS. Spent the whole day there. Met a lot of nice drummers and got to play with aprox 280 kits going simultaniously. A real blast!

One of the more unusual kits.

We played several beats. One was "We Will Rock You" and another was a standard rock beat. There were others, all were started from the stage and for the most part all 280+- drummers were on the same beat. Cool!

I was supposed to do this in Ft Lauderdale. Band rehearsal trumped it! On top of that it was outside and very cold for S Fla!
