My game-changing moment was seeing Steve Jordan for the first time! He was grooving like a BOSS with John Mayer. Incredible! All my powerfills just didn't matter anymore; I knew I wanted to GROOVE! So from that moment on, the only thing I practice now is groove. Thanks Steve!!
In celebration of Vic Firth Company's 50th anniversary, we've spent an entire year celebrating Game-Changing Moments in drumming -- including yours! To everyone who shared a story with us this year, thank you! Drumming is a shared experience and we are all brothers and sisters! Your stories have inspired us to continue making the best sticks possible and to continue changing the game for drummers everywhere.
We received thousands of amazing stories this year. Although it was difficult to choose only one story, we're happy to announce that Joe Russomano is our grand prize winner in the Game-Changing Moments contest!Read Joe's Story
