(Remarkably, instrumentation for this performance involved only Nonjohn playing Boogie Woogie on a digital piano and his friend, Jeff Carpenter, manually playing an old Alesis Drum machine.  No sequencing of any sort was used.  The perception of a "five piece band" results from the polyrhythmic complexity of Boogie Woogie.)
