Contributed Profile

I’m a Chiropractor in Newaygo, Michigan. I learned to play the bones from my father when I was very young. I eventually became a drummer, and do both now for fun. I do some civil war reenacting, so they both fit in. I have a set of bones (wooden, painted black) given to me by my late father. I also have a couple of purchased sets. I had to have a set of Percy Danforths. I make my own and enjoy trying different woods. I hope to start a ‘bone’ collection, but want to make my own. I have several friends on the look-out for moose. elk, cow, ect. ribs. I play with both hands and enjoy playing civil war era music.
