Hug a Drummer Day is celebrated around the world on October 10 and encourages people to show respect to those who usually remain in the shadows. Most of the glory goes to the soloists, but we must not forget about the other members of the groups who give all the best on stage for 10 points! It is the drummer who sets the rhythm of the music and can make the listeners move more actively or at a slower pace.
National Day has become a favorite holiday for musical people. This fact is easy to follow. But the drummers don’t know who to thank for setting the date. Perhaps the person who invented it will reveal his face in the near future.
Many do not realize how much effort and energy is invested in one hour concert. Often musicians are offended, considering them lazy and real outsiders. Surprisingly, such people exist!
Hug a Drummer Day has many events where the drummer appears in front of everyone in all his glory! In recent years, major manufacturers of drums and other musical instruments have become participants in the festival. Over time, the popularity has increased greatly!
