We were proud to have officially kicked off this journey at Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA with members of the Human Jukebox drumline. Their performances are powered by Ludwig Ulitmate series marching drums under the direction of Ludwig Musser Educator Artist Lorenzo Hart - Director of Percussion at Southern University. Following a few days of clinics and performances, we got to sit down with Aaron to talk about the mission ahead and his experience.
Through intentional connections, Aaron Spears entered the Isaac Greggs Band Hall of Southern University to partner with the famed Human Jukebox Drumline for a performance that is both dynamic and powerful. This performance features Ludwig marching and drum set products made in Monroe, N.C USA.
