Re: screen names
Tellin' ya, bro', with gas as high as it is these days, you may be headin' in the right direction!
now to my screen name...as you can see above, I refer to my male buddies as "brothers," or, for short, "bro's."
"bongobro" is a contraction of "bongo brother," which is glaringly obvious to anyone who's hung around this forum any length of time! I can play a drum kit, but given the choice, you'll find me slappin' the skins...amd I consider anyone who rocks the bongos, congas, etc., as a "bongo brother."
The first dude I referred to specifically as my "bongo brother" was a guy who shares my June 22nd birthday (he turns 21 the day I turn 56!) and who also digs hand drumming.
When I joined DrumChat, there was also no member with "bongo" in his or her user name...so voila! "bongobro!" That has since changed--, bongoJohn!
keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!
