September 10: Teebone at Wilson High School
Timothy “Teebone” David talked about the history of go-go and his own experiences growing up in Washington, DC. He heard the music in everything around him from windshield wipers to the falling rain. He got a set of drums when he was very young. His mother told him that if he did not practice every day, she would take them away. So he threw himself into learning to play, starting with “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” He played the congas for the students, modeling the original Latin beats and showing how they were adapted for go-go and now for the bounce beat. A high school student had the honor of joining him for back-up on the drums.
