Drum! Magazine 2013 Drummies! Awards & Drum! Night
So we’re a little late (been so busy making drums!) but we wanted to take a second to congratulate all of the Drum! Magazine 2013 Drummies! award winners. The Jazz Drummer of the Year award went to Marcus Gilmore, with runners up Justin Faulkner, & Kendrick Scott, and Chris McHugh landed a runner up nod for Country Drummer! We could not be any more honored to work with these phenomenally talented drummers, and are proud of their continued success!
