Since 8 years ago. Until 2006, we used to called ourselves the Backyard Wannabes.
Do you do this for fun?
Well, it is fun but it's not about having fun. It's about worshipping God with all our hearts.
How did you get started with the Boomwhacker stuff?
Okay, About 5 years ago we entered a competition called Fine Arts. There was a new category called unconventional percussion And we asked our mom if we could enter it. She said "Sure, whatever." and we ended up at Home Depot banging on stuff with our mallets. We found four-inch corrugated drainage pipe and we figured out how to tune it by cutting it at different lengths. Then we pulled our boomwhackers out of the closet (which by the way you can by at any retail music store). Dad build a PVC contraption to hold the drainage pipe together. Then we got a metallophone and voila!
So, what do you call this instrument?
Well, he does have a name. The aforementioned, Big Moe!
How long do you practice, or DO you practice?
Yes, we practice! We practice alot! We pretty much practice every day.
