Thank you to all who braved the snow yesterday to help us celebrate our grand opening! Also shoutout to those who were not able to make it because of weather and distance. We felt the love from far away and truly appreciate it! Yesterday was a successful start to what we hope to be an incredible place... A place for drummers, by drummers. So many people made this event a success - set the snowy evening off right performing beautiful Christmas Carols in the first floor museum. New on the museum store is first satellite Drum Shop.
