Patricia Islas and Doug Bush have been friends of mine since 2003, my age-out year at Southwind, when they were the front ensemble and bass drum technicians, respectively. Then we taught together for a few years, adventuring all over the U.S. where I was priveledged to listen to their beats and wisdom day in and day out.

I'm not sure I know a better team of musicians and educators than Team Islas. And it turns out they make some pretty incredible music as a band featuring Patricia's vibraphone and Doug's drumset.

Super proud to have them on the LR Accomplice team representing Lot Riot in North Texas!

Team Islas join the Lot Riot Accomplice team.
