Drummers form a unique community. When a drummer gets sick or falls on hard times, the “nation of drummers” rallies to help. When a drummer needs a tip, there are no secrets, only sharing. In recognition of this communal spirit, Magna Carta Records’ Pete Morticelli conceived the Drum Nation project.
