Our top picks from ZackGrooves
Even though Zack has only been around a short period it is incredibly hard to pick out a favourite video. Each video is unique and engaging so they all have their charm. Let’s start with the video that started it all for ZackGrooves.
During his Jazz recital for college during the drum solo, Zack decided to play this the tempo of the track making it a bit more tricky for his bandmates to keep time. This is something Zack had tried with the band during rehearsals but did say he wouldn’t do it during the actual performance.
Anyway, Zack decided to give it a go and ended up apologising during his performance. Luckily the band held it together and the exam was passed.
