Brandon Miller - Cats

Brandon’s setup for Cats at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

“I am the resident percussionist at this year-round operation. I combined both the drum and percussion books in order to cover as much as possible. I used the old 10-piece orchestration for one percussionist from several years ago as a guide.

I use the MalletKat for the vibraphone parts. I prefer the live bells and xylophone. I usually do not get this much room because our normal pit is very small. Thankfully the Cats orchestra is usually off stage. I was able to suspend both the bass drum and primary gong. What a fun show to play!
