We asked readers to tell us about something they've done this summer so Bec Foster shared this story about 18 month old Bentley attending a Timaru band jam.

Bentley had a great time at his first Descendants of Darwin jam practice.

He loved the guitars (or 'tars, as he calls them) and was stoked to have a play on Rob's drums with Uncle Dip, making his "look what I've done!" face each time he hit a cymbal.

BIG BANG: Uncle Dip showing Bentley how to use the drums.

It was a struggle to get him to wear the earmuffs at first but he soon got used to them. He had a little dance and clapped along.

Uncle Dip got him a keyboard and microphone for Christmas so it won't be long until he is making music of his own.

But even with all the music he still managed a relaxing drink, a few yawns and a snuggle!
