Landon's Last Middle School Concert

Last week Landon finished his middle school events with the Spring Concert. He has become quite the drummer. We had so many people come up to Kevin and me after the concert to tell us how fun he was to watch. He gets his little body taking off with the music, which makes it fun to listen to and him a kick to watch. These videos took forever to finally post, but they are here mostly for his sisters, who hate missing out on his and Tibi's growing up. I tried to post their first number, which was a tribute to cartoon theme songs, but when I woke up this morning, it still hadn't downloaded, so you don't get that one. (I totally forgot about "Animaniacs!") By the way, sorry if you hear an annoying humming sound throughout these, there was a HUGE fan right next to me trying to keep everyone cool. Aarrgghh...

This one is shorter and shows off his "body language!" If you wait long enough, you'll see a couple of great "drum fills."

The last song he played on was "Minnie the Moocher" - a great swing number that gave him time to relax and even talk to Cade next to him. Pretty good multi-tasking, if you ask me!

I'd say he has a pretty good shot at playing in the high school Jazz Band for 3 years like Kira did.

I can't wait to see you guys!! Yes, we drummers think we have the luxury of talking and what not during performances because we're in the back and we think no one is watching us ha ha I did it all the time!!
