And that’s exactly how it struck for Brock Shults, a Miami student and the drummer for the Thumbtack Mechanics, a rising band that’s taken the campus community by storm. We’ll talk about balancing the limelight of live music while keeping up with classes and coursework, the challenges of time management, and about how you never know what might be just around the corner in college.
