This is a video from the Big Benevolent Bash, a concert I helped throw as an end of the year show for the Music School I attended. This was a cover of the Who's "Young Man Blues," with Alex Van Brasch on Vocals and lead Guitar, and of course, myself on drums. This concert was especially cool because all of the proceeds went to the fundraiser "Guitars, not Guns."
This is a music video for the song "Let my Love," by singer-songwriter Molly Reeves. I recorded the drum part as well as being featured as one of the circus performers in the video. Here's a hint, I'm the character most likely to have a small car and large feet! HAhaha

The Sacramento Traditional Jazz Camp: It's a blast! I had a lot of fun that year, played more music that week than any other, and learned a ton from playing and from observing and listening to the professors there. Here is a video of me just kicking back and playing drum solos outside of the lunch hall. People there are actually okay with hearing loud noises before they eat, they actually want it, they hunger for the jazz rhythm. Jazz camp is an amazing time and place :)
This is a video of the "Viper Youth" playing a cover of "Who Walks In" at the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Camp.Most of the folks at jazz camp tend to be seniors, so this year, I had the idea to round up all of the youngest and fastest players in the camp, and cajole the camp director to let us play a song for everyone. I play drums, bones and perform backup vocals in this video. Thanks for Watching, and reading; That's even cooler of you! -Kenneth Davis
