Back in 2015 we achieved my dream of having a band with 6 drummers. Just like BHMY was when I was a little cymbalists. The memories are priceless.
I had aimed to make the band great again, to make it large again, but I wasn’t sure we would be able to.
It wasn’t just about size though, or sound actually. It was about rebuilding the environment I remembered.
And now? Well now we have 8 drummers! And a Main Band of over 50 with cadets still to promote. And the environment? It’s safe, friendly, family orientated and supportive.
It is possible to grow something from not a lot. A little seed of ambition mixed with some drive and a lot of determination, it’s possible to achieve your dreams.
BHMY may not pay the bills for us and it wont make us rich financially, but it doesn’t have to.
It’s taken a lot of hard work from all involved but here we have a band that’s as good as it was back in the 90’s.
An incredible achievement.
Well done everyone.
