So you’re wondering how the Drum Depot Monday Club started eh?
Are you sitting comfortably? Then you may begin…
After work, usually on a Monday, some of us stay behind, have a catch up, thrash out some ideas, play drums and generally hang out. Amongst the staff here, this became known as the Drum Depot Monday Club.
Last year we decided to invite mates along to our #DDMC shenanigans. Again, we all hang, play drums, see what ideas come up etc.
What if we then took that to another level… Like inviting YOU to attend a FREE event to further your drumming knowledge, have a jam with us, just hang out and learn? We’ve actually been doing that since the start of the year but haven’t advertised it as we wanted to get it up and running and iron out any creases…
We held our first official #DDMC on 6th March. We invited the pupils of local schools to get involved in a number of small group masterclasses held here between 5.30pm and 9pm with one of our in-house tutors Aled Lloyd Drums. The evening was an amazing success and everyone loved it!
DDMC was well and truly born!
And this brings us nicely onto our next DDMC event…
Apparently there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Think again… that idea is about to be well and truly shattered!
