Hug A Drummer Day

Hug a Drummer Day is celebrated on October 10th all around the world in order to pay tribute to and show appreciation for the drummers in bands. Because drummers sit at the very back of the stage during performances, it is often felt that they do not receive the recognition that they reserve and that they are unable to take their place in the spotlight with the rest of the band when they are on stage.

On Hug a Drummer day a number of special concerts are held around the world. For once, it is the drummer's turn to shine as they take center stage. And of course, on this day the drummers will receive plenty of hugs and other tokens of appreciation from their fans. A large number of big drum manufacturers and percussionists have become involved with Hug a Drummer Day in recent years and the popularity of this annual event is rapidly increasing.
