Alafia Abures Mi!
I hope that you are all well and in an abundance of blessings!

I'm still ALIVE folks! I've been gone now for what seems decades, but I'm back! I'm back, and have update on my JCRs that I had sent to Matthew Smith a bit more than 11 Fricken Years Ago! Yes 11, Ónce Años, however you say it, it all comes down to......."The man ripped me off!" Hey, but how are you guys doing? I'm still jammin on my other drums, playing with local groups around town. I'm taking only the gigs that I choose! Folks gettin' crazy up on stage these days, arguing about what clave this song is in, and yelling at each other up on stage! Que Cosa!

I'm happy to be back tho, hopefully I can stay on here without stepping on any toes.......so far so good!

Be Well Brothers/Sisters

Odagbo!

Hello onile,
Sorry to hear that, what a drag!
So, that means he just kept your drums, no compensation no explanations?
A toe ain't much of a toe, if it ain't been stepped on once or twice.
Have fun playing!
Good Vibrations,
Mr. Blavonski

Alafia Abure Blavonski!
I hope that you are well my brother!

Yeah, that's about the size of it! My toe has definitely been stepped on for sure!

In my heart of hearts, I know that he's a great person, always had nice things to say and definitely a great artesian. It's just after 11yrs. plus, I grew tired of hearing his excuses for not having them ready/completed! It's a shame, but I still have numerous sets to play.

I think I'd drive to his place and take my drums back. Definitively.

Onile,
that's a lot of understanding... But, what can you do when communication breaks down
and you're possibly thousands of miles away. Maybe they'll arrive one day, just when you've actually forgotten about them.


@ Chtimulato,
Hey Marc! How are your Giovannis doing?
Good Vibrations,
Mr. Blavonski

Oye Papá!
Como esta' KIng Conga? I do hope that you've been doing well hermano!

AZ is burning up brothelito! It's hotter than the Devils Armpit!

Yeah, I've taken an extremely long hiatus from drumming forums, I just needed a break, and I'm sure members needed me to as well.
Eh, what's a girl to do? :D :D :D

How are you doing hermano? Still drumming? Y tu primo, how's he doing? I think most of the folks on here follow you on "Vintage Congas", congrats, it's an extremely informative, and resourceful forum! You've done well with forming it! Bendicion!

I'm still at the same place, next visit to AZ give me a call and we'll get together again!

Be Well Papá!

Odagbo!

Yes, "Vintage Conga Drums" forum is off the hook brode, over 9,500 members from literally all over the world, got some good people helping me manage it, made some new friends as well. You too bro. if you ever come to Cali, look me up.
