Jimmy Celebrates a Year With APX
Mon., Oct. 30. 2006 12:20pm EST
Our concert this past Saturday in Mechanicsville MD was the one-year anniversary of our first concert with Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner on drums. Jimmy played his first concert with ApologetiX on October 28, 2005 in Noblesville IN, filling in for our previous drummer Bill "Moose" Rieger. He's played all of them since then, except for the "Moose Farewell Tour" in Ohio, January 27-29, 2006.
Saturday was also Jimmy's 135th concert with ApologetiX. He played a total of 134 concerts in his first 365 days, a new record for any ApologetiX member. He also played in 29 different states, another record. The previous records were both held by Moose, who played 72 concerts in 19 states and one province (Ontario, Canada) in this first 365 days.
Moose holds a few records Jimmy's still working on, though:
most concerts by an ApologetiX drummer: 396
most states played by an ApologetiX drummer: 46
most albums played on by an ApologetiX drummer: 5
most DVDs played on by an ApologetiX drummer: 2
most times played in Vegas by an ApologetiX drummer: 1
