I find it interesting that about 60% haven't seen Beethoven's Nightmare play before and almost 50% have never heard of them before! Didn't you know that it existed for 30 years and still not many deafies know about this band? Why? There are possible reasons.
- Not enough public relations or awareness about this band?
- Not enough consideration by deaf event planners (i.e. Deaflympics) to include them in special events as it requires some money (but it is always made possible if sponsors are asked in advance) ?
- Or deaf people in general think music is for those who have residual hearing and it is not valued?
What do you think?
This is a visual band by, of and for the deaf and everyone, no matter how deaf a person can be, will enjoy the beat and vibration along with songs in ASL. I am just trying to understand why they are not being recognized by this nation, that's all. It is just a crying shame.
