  1. Just when I thought how cool it would be to play Cajone with the pipes of any kind, here they are with 5 OF THEM ON STAGE!!!!!!!!!! The greatest Concert bass drummer on Earth playing her wall. Great melody/harmony sections. Man, that idiom is so far ahead of Scottish Pipe Bands, it’s Crazy. LOVE IT! HOSS
