Drummer Boy

World Beat or “Whirled Beat” ~ this drummer boy definitely has it! He is videoed here in 2012 at the age of 10 drumming on a washing machine. Dan Carollo is the creator of this video, and has this to say:

“Seattle-area boy (age 10 at time of publish) enjoys exploring the undiscovered, percussive sounds of household appliances. He also owns a Pearl drum kit (as well as a Pearl cajon), has been taking lessons for over a year, but is mainly self-taught in general percussion. His main inspirations are Neil Peart and Buddy Rich.

This video has been featured on CNN video, MSN videos, USA Today, The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Daily Mail (UK), The Huffington Post, and Time Magazine Online, The Blaze and many others. Jonathan also performed live on the Steve Harvey Show in Chicago (aired April 23, 2013).

If you’re a curious washing machine geek, it’s a Speed Queen, super-capacity plus, 14-cycle washer with stainless steel drum. Great for reverberation and for getting your socks brilliant white!”
