Percussion Section of Musical Jokers


These are my percussion jokers, primarily drummers but also piano players, players of cymbals and bells, and at least two accordion players.  Take a look. Here’s one typical dummer.

Players Navy Cut Playing Cards

I should explain that there are percussion jokers elsewhere in the collection for various reasons such as they might be a part of a musical ensemble set (which has its own section) or have a two headed design which would put it in the topsy turvy section. 

There's also this drummer who is in the clown section although he's clearly drumming.

And these dancers who have no wands, they have cymbals who are in the dancer section.  Are they mis-categorized? Should I move them?

 And in the midst of the performers section (with no cards), I find these two who also could be moved to the percussion section.

There are another eight percussion jokers in the musical ensemble section so that the sets can stay together. For example:

Here are the ensemble shots of my percussion section. There about 58.


This next section has the cymbalists and the bell players.

More cymbals plus a harlequin tambourine player and a rabbit with some sort of drum. There are also the piano players who oddly, count as percussion (even though they are stringed).

There are two below with instruments that I am hard pressed to identify. Perhaps they are rattles?

  1. Stringed Instruments 
  2. Wind Instruments(the flute players recently split into their own section)
  3. Percussion including piano. this page!
  4. Musical Ensembles (to keep joker sets together)
There are also musical jokers in the topsy musical section.
There are also jokers with real musicians which are in the real people section. And Elvis, the King, of course has his own section.

Dancing Jesters No Wand

Welcome to a happy page of dancing jokers. This article features dancing jokers who are NOT holding jesters wands. Huh? Here's the thing: The dancing section got so big that I felt that I had to divide it into sections. This article has these dancing jokers with NO WANDS. Yup, they aren't holding jester wands or baubles. The overall dancing jesters section is as follows:
 
Dancing Jokers with Wands who dance in one of three directions:
-    To the Right
-    Straight ahead
-    To the Left
Dancing Jokers with no wands
- this one!
 



This next page has six jokers that I consider to be almost  moneybag jokers.  They're here because they are dancing and what a jester is doing is the more primary (primordial?) organizational system.  But, since they are holding a bag full of gold coins and coins are spilling onto the ground, they are closely related to the money bag playing card jokers. 










































The dancing section got so big that it's now subdivided into:

Dancing Jesters - Straight Ahead - With Wands

Welcome to a happy page of dancing jokers. This article features dancing jokers, holding jesters wands, facing directly forward (not to the left, nor to the right). Huh? Here's the thing: The dancing section got so big that it's now subdivided into:

 Want to see more dancing jokers? I bet you do. Because there were so many, the dancers got organized as follows:

 There's also jokers with cats, gals in bikinis (a few guys), and American monuments (just to name a few areas)

Dancing Jesters with Wands, To the Right!

Welcome to a section with many dancing jokers. There were so many dancing jokers, so many many many dancing jokers, that I felt that the section should be subdivided for easier navigation to find if a specific joker was already in the collection. For dancing jokers, here's the organization. It's based first on whether the joker is holding or NOT holding a jesters wands (bauble). And if they are holding a wand as so many are, it's about the orientation or direction that the dancer is facing.

 Dancing Jokers with Wands can dance in one of three directions:
-    To the Right 
- this page!
-    Straight ahead
-    To the Left
Dancing Jokers with no wands.
