Blake Davenport started playing the drum set at age eight and began percussion music when he was in high school. He planned to take a year off after graduating and then go to university in his home town. But before deciding, he took his mother’s suggestion to participate in the U of L’s Be a Student for a Day.
“I got to watch a Global Drums rehearsal and I was like ‘Oh, yeah, I’m coming here,’” says Davenport. “There was no way I was going anywhere else.”
