On January 19th, the Family Matters young men’s drum team “Roots of Rhythm” performed to a packed audience of O.N.E. community organizations at the United Church of Rogers Park. The audience members showed their rhythmic appreciation with feet tapping, chair dancing, and some spontaneous dancing by the little ones. This was the first or second public performance for most of the young men, and it provided quite a boost to their self esteem. The performance closed with a standing ovation for the young men’s efforts.
Please check out a short video of the performance, along with a few pictures captured by a member of Family Matters’ burgeoning photo program.
