These videos are some of my personal drumFunny favorites (in terms of non-original content). Vadrum, or Andrea Vadrucci’s, Youtube channel recently passed 25 million views, which makes him the first exclusively Italian channel to achieve the nonsequential milestone. Since he began posting his videos, he has picked up endorsements from Mapex and Meinl (Banished Beyond ain’t doing so bad in that department, either). He’s also won a bunch of awards and been invited to play at festivals throughout Europe. Despite all his success, we at drumFunny in no way encourage our viewers to post videos of them playing on YouTube (unless you’re of the caliber of say, Vadrum, Banished, or this guy. We beg you, there are too many as it is. If you ignore our request and we find your video (and believe me, we will) be prepared for drumFunny’s version of a pillory.
This video originally aired on HBO in the late 80’s. The Yes/No People was founded by Luke Creswell (who also created STOMP) which explains all the improvised instrument choices. In case you didn’t catch it from the title, you’ll also see members of the ‘87 Sunrisers and Cadets appearing randomly throughout the video.
And now for our next installment of “People-In-Subways-Not-Giving-A-Crap-About-Kickass-Musical-Acts”
This video was submitted by our friends in the 2009 Bluecoats snareline. On the set is Sir Bando, creator of the Sir Bando Shuffle.
Looks like pre-tour is off to a good start…
Thanks guys. Best of luck this season!
Getting ready for drum corps? Are you asking yourself, “ZOMG, HOW AM I EVER GOING TO FIT ALL MY STUFF IN THIS SUITCASE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
Have no fear. Expert Village demystifies the millennia-long challenge of how to efficiently pack a suitcase.
Editor note: Seriously, what the f are the qualifications for starring in a video for Expert Village? I bet I could make a video titled “Dealing With Menopause” and they’d post it.
An interesting, comedic combination of the classic Blink 182 song and actual music.
