What is a Playshop?|
Well, most folks call them workshops, but when Reggie’s at the helm, they’re just too much fun to call work!
Reggie regularly leads playshops at schools, conventions, places of worship, concerts, retreats and clinics.
"If I can just impact 1 of 10 people, I get rewarded,"
explains Reggie. "I got this call from Mac, this
blind piano player. Mac's about 14 years old. I met
him a year ago through DK Stewart... DK's been
teaching him Boogie woogie piano and he's good and I
was impressed when I saw him last year. Well I did a
workshop at the blues festival this year and I saw him
with his parents, and I told them that I had this
workshop coming up... we did a song or two and I
noticed the reaction of people in the audience,
identified a couple of kids and asked them would they
come to the stage and participate. And I had some
chairs sittin' down there and they got in the chairs
and I had some percussion instruments for 'em and they
were teenagers, y'know, so you know how hard it is to
get teenagers to participate?! Cause they're at that
awkward age where they don't wanna look jive. Three
young teenage males too, and they participated!
...and Raven, deaf young lady I met a club and just
saw her signing and dancing, but she was dancing to
the rhythm! And I'm going to have her participate in
this [workshop] I'm doing in Corvallis... and you
know, if I can get the deaf and the blind to come into
this very foreign land that we take for granted, of
the sounds and the sights of what I do... through it
all they bring something to the table, they bring that
which we all could use to bring all of us together."
