Playing with Garden Tools

Are you one of those skeptics thinking that a Flower & Garden show are all about old ladies admiring totally unpractical blooms to grow … THINK AGAIN! Did you know that at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle this past February you could have met Oscar winning jazz musicians and watched them play with some of your favorite landscape and gardening tools? Making this all happen at the show were the awesome peeps at @Subaru_Life  ( Subaru of America ) . That’s right, a car company brought to the stage Eduardo Mendonca of Seattle, Chicago Native and Jazz Artist  Kenny Coleman and jazz great  Denny Stein of Seattle.   In the video below you’ll see NWFGS manager introduce the ‘Corona Tool Band’ and even play along with the Jazz greats!

I asked the musicians if they have ever played gardening tools before ……

Eduardo Mendonca of Seattle  Kenny Coleman of Chicago and Denny Stein of Seattle.

Follow These Creative Musicians … they are helping bring jazz to South Africa with the support of President Obama this summer.  I will share more as the story breaks on this event.
