Nate, seen here with the awesome red hair playing away on a drum kit, gets to sit in a cage a couple times a month when he plays drums for our church services. The drum cage is an interesting thing. What is it that scares church ladies the most? A church drummer out of control. So, we put the drums in a cage. The audio engineer is also a bit miffed by too much stage volume, so we put the drums in a cage. The vocal team wants to hear nothing but themselves on stage, so we put the drums in a cage. You go to a church worship seminar, they have a drummer in a cage. You can’t win if you are the drummer. You have to wear ear plugs since the volume inside the cage is unbearable. You sweat because no one really thought of ventilation. (OK, so we put a fan in there). There is only one thing that makes the drummer love the cage…the threat that we will bring back the electronic drum set!!
