    Default Checking in from Akron, Ohio

    ... the ex rubber capitol of the world.

    Joe Walsh and the James gang used to play around these parts .... way back in the late 60s if I remember right. That James Gang drummer was pretty darn good.

    Welcome Zone, great to have you as a member of our family!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Our band used to do "Tend My Garden". Jim Fox played drums and other instruments.

    Welcome to DC Zone47.

    We are neighbors and I work at one of the "still in existence" rubber companies in Akron.
    I'm not originally from the area, but my wife is. From what she tells me, this area, back in the day. was a pretty happening place musically speaking. She said that Cleveland was a main stop for bands going between Chicago and New York. I would have loved growing up here during that era.

    Again, welcome and enjoy!
