Drummer in Band at Outdoor Concert is a Stroke Survivor


Nicolas DeGaulejac, a member of SSA’s stroke survivor group, is the drummer of the band Corday

Thursdays in the summer, I love going to the outdoor concerts at El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. We bring our camp chairs, a little something for noshing, and sometimes meet up with friends.

Last Thursday, the local Long Beach group Corday was playing a great mix of old rock ‘n roll with some country mixed in. What a surprise when the lead band member, Jennifer Corday, mentioned, “our French drummer, Nic.”  Looking up I recognized Nicolas DeGaulejac from our Stroke Support Association’s stroke survivor group. His drumming skills added so much to the fun outdoor vibe.

It’s not too late to enjoy the summer outdoor concerts. And keep yours eyes open for one of our talented musicians!
