Trash Orchestra Practice
Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra is looking for a beginning to experienced drummers willing to learn and grow with us. Plus points for tenacity, self-motivation, passion, courage, righteous anger about the state of the world, and experience with non-hierarchical projects.
Trash Orchestra is a performance and marching percussion band, whose instruments are composed exclusively of recycled and reclaimed materials, focused on anarchist and anti-authoritarian struggles and mutual support for groups making radical social change.
Influences: Infernal Noise Brigade, Stomp, Tom Waits, Samba, James Brown, drumlines, Rage Against the Machine, Indonesian Gamelan, taiko, the military drum bands of our youth, and dozens of other awesome radical marching bands.
We have weekly 2 to 3 hour practices and regular performances. Practices are Sunday afternoons 3pm top of the River St Parking Garage. Come join us and play with us. This is the best way for us to try each other out.
If you are a drummer with a variety of rhythmic influences and interests and are full of rebellious insolence, come play. Please tell us what you find interesting about Trash Orchestra, your musical and political influences, and the instruments you play (or wish you could),
