Kyle Dunleavy’s Steel Drums

kyle-dunleavyI haven’t actually been able to catch up with Kyle Dunleavy but I knew he existed because the Carters and Jason Roberts have workshops next to him.  And I couldn’t post about him because I didn’t have a picture, and I never post without pictures.  So it was a nice find when I came across an article on Philly.com by Diane Mastrull talking about new uses for industrial sites and Kyle shows up in one of the photos.  So I’ve appropriated it.  The Carters said you could tell how close he was to finishing the drums because the noises that came from his shop would get more and more musical.  He makes steel drums!  That is so neat.  It’s a shame they run to three grand or I’d take them up.
