Jason Degenhardt - Next To Normal

Here is a shot from Jason’s setup for Next To Normal performing at Topeka Civic Theatre in Topeka, Kansas.

"Next To Normal is a fun and challenging book full of everything from delicate bell/vibe passages to raucous multi-meter grooves. I'm playing TreeHouse Drums, hand made in Topeka, Kansas by myself and master builder Derek Sharp. Due to space, I've omitted the 5-note timpani part. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some vibes, and this Yamaha gold bar set is a beauty! The extended lower octave serves as a great mallet table. The Snare Drum was painted by my good friend and TCTA staff member Sara Myer.”

Jason is a freelance drummer/percussionist in the Topeka, Kansas area where he also assists Derek Sharp in the building of TreeHouse Drums.  He also has his own teaching practice called Studio 17 Percussion and is an Adjunct Music Professor at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas.
