Whenever we think about cops, we always imagine them as capable, strong, no nonsense men who are always ready to uphold the law anytime any day. We don’t usually relate their personalities with being good with music.
However, one incredible sheriff just proved that cops are not just good with saving lives and keeping everyone safe. They can also be good with music and can totally give a performance that people won’t easily forget. This man is no other than Sheriff A.J. Mendez from th Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office and he is one amazing drummer!
On one football game night, the Sheriff Mendez went by and watched the game wearing his full uniform. While it can be considered normal to see cops watching football games, Sheriff Mendez absolutely shocked everyone when, at one point in the game, he stood with the band and played the drums like a pro!
In a video uploaded on the Facebook page of the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office, the policeman can be seen as he stood behind the drums set and took the drumsticks to play an impromptu song. He started his percussion live performance and beat the drums with such ease and expertise, leaving everyone in shock as he played the drums with impressive skills and undeniable musical talent!
The caption on the video mentions that the event was “interacting with the Poteet High School Band at the football game in D’Hanis on Saturday night.”
Well, he certainly was doing more than just interacting.
He totally rocked the place when he took hold of the drumsticks and started beating the drums. People were not expecting such a number at all and when he did a mini exhibition, everybody just got floored with his fantastic skills. Everybody who has seen his impromptu performance would surely call it the work of a professional, a claim that we can’t agree more with!
The policeman must have been a band member himself when he was younger. Why, you say? That’s because he played with so much ease and is extremely familiar with the instrument. He is simply impressive and he knew the song by heart, too.
When Sheriff Mendez finally concluded his performance, everyone in the event just exploded in roars of approval and applause for the talented man. The policeman threw a high five to another drummer before leaving the stand and joining the other viewers.
We can only imagine the delight of all the attendees that night. Their sheriff gave an unforgettable performance while wearing his uniform. That doesn’t happen everyday, you know!
People online who saw his video were definitely blown away by the sheriff’s amazing talent.
“Wow he is great! The Sheriff’s Office needs a drum line!” one comment from Suzanne Pittman Neal read.
Cheryl Wyrick, on the other hand, found the shock of the other band members as rather amusing and pointed it out in their comments, saying:
“Woohoo awesome great job! Way to go ! The band members look very impressed!!!! Deputy Sheriff Mendez getting involved great example!!!”
