Hi! I’m Meg (AKA BlueDrummer), I’m from Palm Harbor, Florida, and I’ve been playing drums for 4 years now. This is my second year entering HitLikeAGirl – such a great opportunity!
Ever since I was little, music has been a huge part of my life. I’ve played through many different styles in my fours years of drumming, but for some reason, jazz stuck more than others.
For the last two years, I’ve been very jazz-focused. I’ve played with the Ruth Eckerd Hall Big Band and the Patel Conservatory Combo in Tampa, Florida. Every opportunity that comes along to sit in as a jazz drummer, I’m always game!
Right now, I’m obsessing over my favorite band La Lucha! Their jazzy renditions of some of my favorite songs, whether it be pop, jazz standards, or nursery rhymes, always inspire me.
Recently, my best friend, my grandma (Bonana) passed away from cancer. She was always my biggest fan and supported me so much through all of my music endeavors. I want to dedicate this entry to my Bonana! I miss you!
I hope you like my entry of Manteca, a jazz, Afro-Cuban song!
Thanks for listening!
