DCDD Drum Line with The Bleachers

Earlier in the week Logo sent an email to DCDD asking for our involvement in the show. 8 percussionists from across the ensembles came together to form the drum line of 4 snares and 4 basses. 

During the ride up to NYC, the drum line learned their music, arranged by Brian Falatko, After a full day of rehearsal, they were given wardrobe and waited backstage for the big moment, introduced by Kelly Osborne and Violet Chachki, winner of season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race.
