What is Drummathon?
Drummathon is an annual family-friendly fundraising event that brings together the drumming community (of all skill sets 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! Top fundraising drummers have the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of family, friends and attendees! The event also features auctions, Official Breast Cancer Can Stick It! merchandise and Drummathon gear, along with some great musical guests throughout the event. It's fun for the whole family! Leading up to the event, drummers, musicians, and friends alike 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 featured rock star royalty; 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 exponentially.
Drummathon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase your talent and help eradicate breast cancer at the same time -- an experience that can't be beat!
