2002 was the start of it all at the Newport Blues Cafe during an open jam. I was there to check out the scene and walked in while Donna Compos was poppin’ the drums like no other drummer I knew. Small spitfire of a girl, playing open handed and a smile as wide as the grand canyon. Loved her energy the moment I walked in the bar.
Before 2014 we did a lot of cool shit!
