That performance was in honor of and a fundraiser for their master drummer, Jaqui MacMillan, to raise some money after she had to undergo surgery. She was without playing her drums for eight weeks, y’all! If you’re a musician at all (or shoot, if you can even put yourself in her shoes when it comes to anything about which you’re passionate), you can appreciate how difficult it is to be away from your instrument for so long.
Music is in your blood. It’s the life force that flows through your veins, the very sustenance of your entire being. No matter what you play, no matter your experience level… it speaks to a different and otherwise untouched part of your very existence.
I could see this as Jaqui played, from the smile on her face to the way she fell into the music. You could tell she was not only sharing her joy, but exuding it!
If anyone ever gets a chance to see them, please do. They’re a group of amazingly talented and passionate individuals who love to share their music with the world.
