In an effort to bring the passion of musical creativity to drummers and fans of all ages, these events are completely free and open to the public. 

With engagement and inspiration at the forefront of our mission, SJC Drums have designed each event to be much more than your average drum workshop. 

With performances by local drummers, a workshop with Frank Zummo and the opportunity to hear a story of entrepreneurship/SJC's humble beginnings from co-founder Mike Ciprari, drummers of all skill levels will leave the event feeling inspired to hone their own craft and take their passion for music to the next level.

Each date of the tour will feature a pop-up shop with merchandise and gear on-site as well as a raffle for a custom SJC x VANS snare drum, with the lucky winner announced at the end of the tour. 

Fans can even customize their own SJC drum right on-site while chatting with a member of the SJC team. 

A young local drummer will also be given the opportunity to open the show and play along with Frank to close out the event.
"I'm thrilled to take this tour to the West Coast & Texas & showcase amazing new drummers and musicians. I look forward to performing with them and being inspired by them," Frank Zummo said.

About Frank Zummo
Born in New York, Frank Zummo began drumming around age 3, when he discovered his father's drum kit. By age 7, he was an award-winning drummer, taking home top prize in Long Island Drum Centers "Battle of the Beats". Looking at Zummo's impressive resume, it's clear to see he never stopped. Zummo has performed on many TV shows over the years (The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien Show, Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, American Idol & Glee). He has also recorded on many platinum & gold records with Artists Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi, Gary Numan & The Used as well as on scores for the films "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World" and "Beautiful Creatures." Additionally, he has played for bands such as Julien-K, Dead By Sunrise (ft. Chester Bennington) and even filling in for injured Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee during 2009's Crüe Fest 2.

The immensely talented drummer of punk-rock band Sum 41, EDM duo Krewella, and Street Drum Corps is part of the SJC Drum family. Frank and SJC partnered with Shepard Fairey, American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, and founder of OBEY to create a custom drum kit. Finished by Shepard Fairey and titled "Rise Above," the one-of-a-kind drum kit now resides at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The drum kit was used by Frank Zummo from 2016-2017 during Sum 41's U.S. and Canada tours, festivals and the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards where Frank took home the award for Best Drummer and performed an epic battle with Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots) and Adrian Young (DREAMCAR / No Doubt). The drum kit will remain at Hard Rock Hotel for the next three years with another portion of the kit taking up residence at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH.
