When Darren Liccardo, drummer for "The Jazz Factory" in San Jose, California decided to pop the question to his girlfriend Lindsey, he began thinking about an innovative way to do it.
"I was looking for a unique way to ask my girlfriend to marry me when I stumbled across DrumART.com. I knew right away that a custom bass drum head would be the perfect touch since we met playing in a big band. I called Jim in a panic with only the text in mind and he walked me through the process, designed the whole thing, made it, and shipped it -- all within a couple days. When it showed up it was perfect and I had the removable logo on my DW 20" drum in a matter of minutes -- I knew Lindsey would love the sparkly red hearts! I hid the bass drum under a towel during the first set and then uncovered the drum and popped the question -- I couldn't have done it without DrumART.com to back me up! And, oh yeah, she said yes! Thanks Jim!"
Here are a bunch of really wonderful pictures from Darren's gig/proposal. Now I've got to go call my wife... :)
"The towel? Oh, it's just a new muffling technique..."
The big reveal.
The big question.
The big answer.
The show must go on!
Congratulations, Lindsey and Darren!
