In the ongoing quest to spread the word about my cajons, I meet many interesting people. Most recently, I met John LeCompt, guitarist for Evanescence, We Are The Fallen and Machina. He ran across one of my local ads on Craigslist and runs a studio that’s not too far from my hometown. He was interested in my Live! Series Cajon and I was happy to build him one!
It was a win-win for both of us! I got to meet one of my idols and get a little exposure for my drums, he got a great sounding cajon drum! We talked for about two hours about the music industry, his time performing and his various music projects. I’ve been a guitarist for 11 years, so it was an awesome experience to sit down and play a little with him. Unfortunately, his guitar was tuned to open C# or something like that. I wasn’t able to play anything, but it made a great picture!
This is a great step forward for my business and I had a lot of fun!
