The above 1972 Driscoll Productions project was awarded a National Award by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives in Washington, D.C. It was recorded in Boston at the Berklee College of Music when Kevin was still a student. This project included Kearney Can Do billboards, bumper stickers, testimonials, etc.. The Kearney, Nebraska performances of this 60 second jingle by the Girl Scouts and other groups helped launch Driscoll Productions.
Kevin Driscoll "I'm just the humble drummer on the above. My son Lance Driscoll had the idea for the above 92 second Christmas music video that he shot and chopped in Boston. I merely followed his directions. Lance told me to use brushes... so I did. And then switched to hand drumming near the end just to show him that I could."
Do you recognize the Boston hotel? Or TheRealBeardedSanta™
Over forty years ago I paid Rob Hill $100 per hour to mic my drums for a radio/TV commercial. It took Rob over an hour and the results were not as good as Lance's method for recording. Lance used my iPhone held high above the drums in a scaffold at St. Anselm and captured the audio AND video. The bass drum sounds like a cannon when you play the video on car speakers. "
What does a drumming Santa do the rest of the year?

We typically provide quiet background jazz so you can still talk with your guests. However; with our electric guitarist, we were also the band selected to provide dance music for the young crowd at the recent Thirst Boston Gala at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.
