Drummathon is an annual family-friendly fundraising event set in a festival atmosphere that brings together the drumming community (of all skillsets and ages) for one common goal: to fight breast cancer.
As Drummathon works to fight breast cancer, it is also a celebration of life, music, and passion! Registered drummers for the event showcase their talent in front of family, friends and attendees during a timed drum solo, and then later, drummers and attendees have the opportunity to play on a kit alongside the celebrity drummers. Drummers will be playing on one of the two available Official custom Breast Cancer Can Stick It! drum sets designed by Rockett Drum Works. Participants and attendees to this open-to-the-public, free event will also have multiple opportunities to visit the celebrity rock stars at the autograph booth and snap pictures. The event also features silent auctions, raffles, games and vendor booths all while sprinkled with some great music from local rock bands. It's fun for the whole family, even your dogs! Leading up to the event, drummers, musicians, and friends alike will register to raise funds online to compete for a plethora of awesome prizes.
The 2015 inaugural event was hosted by Dan Shinder of Drum Talk TV and kicked off right with rock star drummers Carmine Appice (Ozzy, Rod Stewart, Ted Nugent), Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell), and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Bang Tango, Mr. Big). Since that time, the celebrity alumni list has grown to 13 rockstars, growing each year.
The Drummathon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drum alongside role models of rock 'n roll and help eradicate breast cancer at the same time -- an experience that can't be beat!
