This Coming Sunday is “Drummer Appreciation Day”

Or so I’ve been told.  As someone who still plays (and was once a teacher), this is long overdue. In fact, I believe Drummer Appreciation Day should be an international holiday.

You still have time to shop for the drummer in your life. And let’s all declare a moritorium on jokes like this–at least for one day.


  • How can you tell when a drummer’s at the door? The knocking speeds up, then he doesn’t know when to come in
  • What do you call a drummer who breaks up with his girlfriend? Homeless.
  • What’s the difference between a drummer and a drum machine? You only have to punch the information into the drum machine once.

    What's the last thing the drummer said before he was kicked out of the band?

    Hey guys, want to hear the song I wrote?
