Chicago Made

Once upon a time, Chicago was the epicenter of drum manufacturing in the USA. That star may have faded a bit but there is still a ton of great items being produced here. Fortunately for all of us, my pal Lucian has had enough sense to bring all of the manufacturers together under one roof (i. e. the Deagan building), at the Made in Chicago Drum Cafe. I’ve had the pleasure of stopping by a few times now. You should as well.


As a preview to the upcoming KT’s Kids fundraiser a special track has been posted on Spotify. It was a real blast to lay down drums for a cover of “United” by Judas Priest with some of Chicago’s finest. The vast majority of funds from this go directly to the charity, so please, play often and leave it on repeat.
