RePercussion takes to the streets of Byron to spread the joy of drumming. Photo supplied.

When Paul Barrett, founder of Samba Blisstas, passed away he left his drum collection to the Byron Bay community centre. It is with the memory of the pleasure that people received from the drumming that has brought together members of Samba Blisstas to form the drumming troupe RePercussion to use the drums and they are looking for your help to design a logo.

‘We knew the joy that people got from drumming and we created RePercussion to keep the beat going,’ said competition organiser Janel Morrissey.

‘We are running a competition to see who can create an amazing logo that we will use on our drums, T-shirts and advertising.

‘The logo needs to include our name – “RePercussion” and a symbol/picture if you wish.’

Janel pointed out that the drums are red so a suggested colour for logo is white so that it stands out.

The prize for the winning logo is $100 and two free drumming lessons. Entries need to be emailed to [email protected] by Friday, 23 February.

You can find out more about the RePercussion drumming troupe on Facebook, Instagram and their website.

  1. You have the logo in the photo above
    How can you beat that photo?
    In Rugby league back in 1963 a photo was taken by John O’Gready after the Rugby League Grand Final of captains Norm Provan and Arthur Summons. It was a very wet day and they were covered in mud and after the game as they came off the field in jubilation they hugged each other. That photo became an award winning photo on the front page of the Daily Telegraph. It became the model for the NSW RL premiership of the Winfield Cup, and that cast has been the prize of the RL Grand Final ever since.
    That photo above is a great photo to win an award.

Politics is a phenomenal experience. To work harder than you thought possible, to put yourself so absolutely in the public domain full of hope and belief. Then to ask for judgement. It’s high stakes. A kind of ethical and philosophical extreme sport.
