April 23, 2019 (CLEVELAND, OH) Every music lover knows the percussion section gets people out of their seats and onto the dance floor. Children will even tap out a rhythm at an early age. Music is in our hearts.
Throughout May’s International Drum Month, the Percussion Marketing Council (PMC) is encouraging want-to-be drummers to visit a local participating music retailer to learn how they can begin drumming and enter to win the PMC’s “Roadie for a Day” contest. This Grand Prize package includes a day behinds the scenes with backstage passes, meet and greet with national touring drummer Cindy Blackman Santana, and free concert.
Participating music stores or drum shops (listed at: https://www.playdrums.com/2019idm) will have a life-size Cindy Blackman Santana displays with entry information for customers visiting their store.
“At the very center of the May IDM effort is creating a positive first-drumming introduction and experience,” states Karl Dustman, PMC Executive Board member. PMC will target young, diverse audiences that are potentially interested in drumming as a creative and healthy alternative lifestyle activity. Potential drummers will be able to enter the contest and find out more about drumming on the PlayDrums.com website 24/7—engaging them immediately with all aspects of drumming, instructional material, videos, and drummer profiles.
