A great day was had by all at the Werribee Pop Up Park. Our small group of dedicated drummers (Beat Factor Drum Group) performed some fantastic Latin American and Samba drum pieces for everyone to enjoy. We were later joined by some Brazilian dancers, where more energy and crowd interaction was enjoyed by the audience and officials of the event. Well done team. I guess we all have arm aches, shoulder and neck soreness after a long day of drumming.
