Above is a drum solo from the Blind and Unplugged fund-raising event we had on the 12th.
I just wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who supported Team Armstrong on Saturday by coming out to “Blind and Unplugged” with your help we raised over $1,000 that night. While this is a great start we have a long way to go before we raise our goal of $43,000 for the Foundation […]
“Sensei” Mike Armstrong will be speaking about the Arizona Trail and his other adventures followed by an exclusive acoustic concert by Mike’s band echotribe.
The night is free and donations will be taken at the door with a raffle also taking place throughout the night.
All donations and proceeds will go to the Foundation for Blind Children to support its summer recreation program.
Please join us at Shiloh Community Church at 6pm on February 12th to hear Mike’s amazing story and listen to some good music as well.
Aside from being an adventurer and martial artist Sensei Mike Armstrong is also a very talented drummer. Below are a couple of drum solos Mike recorded during a session back in April 2007. Enjoy the tunes! Drum Solo #1 Drum Solo #2 *Click play on the individual track to listen*
When we went to Africa we spent the first day visiting the Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind. As the Foundation for Blind Children was going to donate 52 braille writers to the school. To celebrate our arrival the school put on quite an extraordinary show of song, dance and even African drums.
Seeing as how Mike is a drummer he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give the school a show as well.
