A few weeks back I stumbled across Alpin Drums, a percussion/performance group.
When I booked the ticket I realized one of them was the percussionist from The Stimulators, a favourite band of mine.
So expectations where very high but easily matched by the guys on stage.
They where using everything from milk cans
to rubber toys and plastic tubing
and even swimming noodles
The whole set is here.
On May 10th, we went to listen to Peter Schneider and 'Sir' Oliver Malley,
two excellent guitarists playing blues together.
I have heard Peter many times as the band leader of the "The Stimulators",
so my expectations where high, but I was not disappointed.
Oliver is definitely a stage person:
Together they are a terrific team:
Even the barkeeper is impressive:
And they do mix excellent cocktails there, they even have really good espresso.
A few more images can be seen here: here.
Now I am waiting for their first CD.
All images with 50/1.8 or a Sigma 24/1.8.

Covered this today for my VisualOhio news blog.
I'd only ever watched a dog show on TV, never been to one in person. It was just like the big Westminster one but instead of one large ring, there were 156 smaller ones. I love dogs so this was a fun assignment. The people were great too!
