    Hey Phil, it was great to see your website and hear about you and the band. Was just talking with an old friend about our wedding (almost 9 years ago!!!!) and what a blast it was: dancing bare foot in my wedding dress to the old Steel Parade, in the sun while drinking a beer…..Awesome memories!!! Keep in touch old friend…(FYI, Vance turning 4 soon).

    Hi Phil 🙂 my name is Gina. My friend inviited me over to Magnolia Village in Riverside CA for the Pirates of the Carribean this past Thursday and everything turned out great! You guys are sooooo awesome!! I had sooo much fun dancing to the music of The Steel Parade Band. You have such a wonderful voice and you are a very handsome guy 🙂 My friend Eloise’s grandson and his little friend Jason admired you guys. Singing Happy Birthday to little Jason was sooo special 🙂 You bring out the Party Animal in All of us !! Hope to see you around in Riverside soon. ~Gina Martinez~

    My name is Ben Varnam and I live in England near London. I love your sound, and I am a huge fan. I am doing a lot of jazz gigs locally, and I noticed your drummer uses a Gigpig sometimes. In one video I saw, he had a Gigpig but with a larger snare drum than normal, and I was wondering did you make the adjustment yourself, or did you ask the company for a special product? Thank you very much, and if you could send me an email via ben.varnam@btinternet.com that would be much appreciated.

      hey Ben,

      yes, we used a Pearl piccolo snare as a replacement for the GigPig snare. we felt the GigPig snare was not sensitive enough, as the snare wires are way down on the bottom of the GigPig box. we also removed the small toms on the GigPig surface and opted to use the attached toms which hang off the side of the GigPig. as you can see, we modified it for our needs. works well, although i do wish the GigPig frame/box was and inch or so smaller in each dimension. please lemme know if there are any questions i may answer for you. thanx, Phil
