Among the many cool things to check out during Urban Nights tonight, be sure to cruise by Feathers Vintage Clothing on 5th Street where Jay Madewell will present a street jam consisting of 7 different musical acts each backed by Madewell on the drums, an idea he got while hosting South Park Tavern’s Rock n’ Roll Play Date.
“For 8 months I provided a drumkit for others to use or I was available to sit in, my goal was to play 4-6 sets every Wednesday night to improve my drumming & help others w/their music,” says Madewell. He then devoted Monday nights to music sessions with other players, to develop the music. “I really enjoyed not having any idea what I was about to play at those open mics, yet I never felt as if I ‘fell on my face’ with any the songs. It made me fearless as a drummer. I’ve met so many new friends through this experience. I like watching how people react to the various players’ songs; all of the performers are unique.”
Madewell says he’s considering starting a new Rock n’ Roll Play Date, something we’ll look forward to bringing you news of here on DaytonMostMetro.com.
