What started as a regular drum circle has now evolved into the world's largest metal drum sound bath that Big Bear, California will ever see. Jill Gatsby with Big Bear Recording Studios, in collaboration with The Sage Hill School in Newport Beach, CA are set to create what may be a Guinness world record for the most metal tongue drums ever played at once by over 100 people on over one hundred metal tongue drums.
The Sage Hills School is coming to Big Bear to celebrate their graduating class of 2022 and they asked Big Bear Recording Studios if they could round up a hundred metal drums. Owner, Jill Gatsby, did not hesitate to hop into action. She has ordered 100 custom made tongue drums with the Big Bear Recording Studio Logo etched into each drum.
The Tongue Drums arrive at the end of this month and we'll have about two weeks to figure out how to get all of us to play together to make this sound epic. Do I believe we can do it? YES I DO! So join us on our homepage here at BIG BEAR RECORDING STUDIOS on Sept 13th and we will stream this event live.
Anyone who wants one of the BEAR DRUMS ... They are $229 a piece @ 14 inches across with 15 NOTES. They all come with a case and Mallets.
