"Thank you, New York Musical Festival, for awarding us with a Special Citation for Representation & Inclusion at last night's Closing Night Party and Awards Ceremony. Interstate made it a priority to work with and hire individuals who identify as women, POC, and/or LGBTQ to tell this story of underrepresented folx."
We closed Interstate last week after 6 shows. I wish we could've played at least 6 more. Thankfully, I think this is only the beginning for this powerful show.
Because there's such a quick turnaround and it's easier to control the sound, every drummer playing a NYMF show has to play the provided electronic kit. I've used the Roland TD-30 in the past, but this was my first time programing it. I built 4 kits and setup a kit chain for the show. It was a pretty easy & intuitive process, as is usually the case with Roland.
If you saw the show, please considering voting Interstate as the best of the fest!
The music is wonderful and the story is one that is close to my heart, to say the least. Please contribute to the Kickstarter if you can and I hope to see you at one of the shows! #RepresentationMatters
