    Default Chicago Drum Show a GO

    From a post on Facebook:

    The folks at the Kane County Fairgrounds tell me that we are a go for the drum show in May. They have been in close contact with the local health department (providing them space for testing) and have again started holding events at the fairgrounds. (Some of them much larger than the drum show.) We of course urge all exhibitors and attendees to be careful, take all of the normal precautions, and get your vaccinations if possible.

    No clinics or master classes will be at the show this year.

    Being there are no clinics, I may not go this year. If I do, it’s to purchase, if I find, a vintage snare drum part.
    Because of no clinics, they should charge less than their $20 entrance fee IMO. They used to let you go both days if you pay a $30 fee the first day. That ended a while back.

    I agree. Seems only fair.

    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.

    GC is almost just a music store.
    MDS is an exceptional drum shop, as is Fork's.

    I made the trip to MDS recently. My wife confiscated my debit card as soon as I walked through the door. ����
