This website started as a gift from Martha Cowett to her dad, Ev Cowett. Martha had said, "What do you give a father who doesn't want anything." Her answer was a rhythm bones website, and so Rhythm Bones Central, now with the URL rhythmbones.com, was born. The Cowett family started the tradition of Bones Fests (three of which they've hosted), and have been instrumental in the formation of the Rhythm Bones Society. The website has been instrumental in all of these activities. Martha maintained this website from 1997 to 2002, when she passed the job on to Jonathan Danforth. We've kept her introduction to the bones page below on this page, because it's a good reminder of where we came from, and a good reminder of that family feeling. In 2010, Steve Wixson using Adobe Dreamweaver added new navigation and features including video. Note that the hands in the Rhythm Bones Society logo in the upper left corner of each webpage are those of Ev Cowett.
