Buckets For Bongos was founded by myself and my wife Sam to promote the fact drumming, even on a household object like a bucket, can help raise your endorphin level, therefore making you happy.
Let's face it, lockdown was not much fun and for entertainers.... well we somehow survived.
During this period, I looked into ways to keep entertained and to keep the niggling self doubts at bay.
And it would appear drumming is good at helping you feel good, who knew?
For dementia patients, music really can help to stimulate the brain and bring back memories and emotions, playing along to music banging on a bucket really can help.
So, a group playing together means everyone has a great time, learns a new skill and hopefully a new friend.
The group sessions so far really have taken on a whole new level, with people who have never played percussion/drums before, suddenly realising, they have got timing and they can play along to a song and everyone leaves with a smile on their fave after initially appearing sceptical about the whole thing.
As one person told me 'So to survive lockdown, all I needed was a bucket to sit in the garden with?' yep, that's it!
