Midtown Patio Sacramento, CA
Due to some miscommunication, Brian and Nyla showed up for a restaurant gig only to find it had closed! They made the best of it and did this practice run in the outside patio. Normally a busy restaurant, the absence of customers amplified the drum and police were alerted to “drumming sounds” on J St in Sacramento. The police officer was very nice and even stayed a bit to watch the performance, though we were unable to include him in the belly dance drum solo video clip!
