The Photograph of the Month is 'Greg Adams'

There is so much great video from Virtual Bones Fest XXIV that the Photograph of the Month will run short (about 3 minutes) Individual Introductions with workshops running as the VOM. In this video, Greg Adams talks about his work with the banjo and how it led to his playing rhythm bones.

The Video of the Month is 'Bill Vits'

The next BFXXIV long (over 20 minutes) video is titled 'Bill Vits - Drum Rudiments for Rhythm Bones and Playing Rhythm Bones with Drums' and was taken from his Workshop. Bill has done this workshop before, but this is his most comprehensive version. Links to previous BFXXIV videos are below. In the following months videos will be from other workshops.

Silver Anniversary Video Ideas Needed

    I'm disappointed that no one has responded to last month's invitation to submit ideas for the Silver Anniversary RBS video to be shown at Bones Fest XXV next year in Alexandria, VA. Can you believe RBS has been around for a quarter of a century! During that time many wonderful things have taken place at our annual Bones Fest, and we want to include the most memorable ones. We need YOU to tell us what those moments are. Go to our CONTACT US page with a brief description of what you think should be included and we will get back to you. If we do a GREAT job who knows who might want to air the video.

We say goodbye at least for now to the fabulous videos from the 'Blues' Bones Fest in Clarksdale, Mississippi except for the two videos below. We have not completed Vgo's Blues Workshop video and it will completed in full after the rush of work from Bones Fest XXIV is over.
