Enter Music Publishing's third annual DRUM! Night was quite a hit. The event, a benefit for San Jose, California's Lincoln High, featured diverse drum concerts and clinics by world-respected drummers and local legends. The third annual benefit, which also included a raffle and silent auction, rocked the San Jose Repertory Theater on August 10.
"Enter Music Publishing really has made it a commitment to conduct events like this for the good of music education," said Phil Hood, publisher and co-founder of the company. "Let's face it. These days, high schools need help from the community to keep music in the educational mix. DRUM! Night, without a doubt, was an attempt to demonstrate the power of drumming to high school-age musicians."
Among the highlights of DRUM! Night was the awarding of the second annual BADAAS Award (Bay Area Drummers Achievement Awards) to Paul Bostaph.
Bostaph, who hails from Newark, California, and came to fame playing with FORBIDDEN, before moving on to SLAYER, EXODUS, and TESTAMENT. In his acceptance speech, he thanked all the drummers and companies, who have stood behind him throughout his career.
Last year, Mike Bordin (FAITH NO MORE) won the inaugural BADAAS Award.
