Brian Wilemon | Mapping a Modern MS

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Brian Wilemon recently started the Bay Ratz Marching Battery. After his son started percussion, Brian decided to start a drum line with a “punk rock aesthetic.” Children of all ages are a part of the Bay Ratz and liven up parades and events in Bay St. Louis, playing all types of percussion—traditional drums, hubcaps, cigar-box guitars, etc.

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
