Following the drumming God from South Africa, I’ll begin to head down a different path. A path that hits a little closer to home in fact. Any musician who regardless if they’ve made it big or not, has a deep love and understanding of local music and the support needed when a “big night” consist of a crowd in the 3 digit range. While the ultimate goal of any local band is to become famous, the one thing that should never leave priority spot number 1 is that of good music. The term “good music” is debatable and subjective from person to person. However, no matter the genre, local music is almost like a sort of school pride in that those who follow the band are proud of them, the music they make, and the humble origins from which they originated.

So, the highlight of the “local music” video for the evening is from my favorite local band here in South Bend, Indiana — Driven.
