Sheltered Reality Provides Positive Message



Bridge View Center, our local event center, hosted the 4H Expo last week.  A highlight was Sheltered Reality, a drumming group with a positive message.  Sheltered Reality offered two performances. . . one in the afternoon and another during the evening.  We attended the afternoon performance.


This was our second time seeing Sheltered Reality as a family, but my third.  I got to see them perform on my birthday.  What a great gift!  And, then again on our anniversary!  Hmm. . . do I detect a pattern here?

Anyway, Sheltered Reality did not disappoint.  Their positive message continues to reverberate just like their drumming.


The boy was chosen to from the audience to drum along.  Actually, he made sure to mention to a couple of people with the show when we waited in the theater that he wanted to drum along.  They thanked him for his willingness, so it was no surprise that he was in the first group to go on stage.

He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was recognized as a “repeat” customer from the group leader, Steve.


After a few more songs, more volunteers were picked.  I raised my hand.  One of the messages after all is “Take a chance.”  I was willing to give it a try.

It was thrilling and I had a great time!

Sheltered Reality’s message is simple—four steps to success: 
Take a Chance.
Do Whatever It Takes
Never Give Up
Believe in Yourself

And they demonstrate they believe in those steps with their performance using balls with drums.  Check it out:




Most recently, the group has been selected as a Class Award Nominee for Best Small Charity and is in the top 5 of all small charities.  I voted on-line for their win in the category.

Sheltered Reality has drum groups throughout the mid-west.  If you want more information, click here. 

We’ll be seeing them again next year!
