Our 2nd Annual Drummathon was a HUGE success raising over $25,000 - of that the drummers raised over $18,000! Drummathon 2016 featured celebrity rock star drummers Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean) as MC, plus Mark Schulman (P!NK), Carmine Appice Himself (Ozzy, Ted Nugent), and Matt Starr (Mr. Big, Ace Frehley). In addition, 18 of the top fundraising drummers showed their talent during a three minute drum solo. As if that wasn't enough, the day featured music from Sweet Chaos, The JuJu Beans, Logan Robot Gladden and Friends, as well as The Breast Cancer Can Stick It! Band, featuring April Samuels.
