Storytelling and Music to benefit Raven Drum Foundation

Not busy on September 9th/10th? Then join me in Healdsburg, CA for some fantastic charity fundraising events! Raven Drum Foundation is joining up with Chateau Diana Winery to present a special afternoon of storytelling and music. The concert event is on the 9th where you can join us for food, drinks, a silent auction, and then a live performance featuring my wife Lauren Monroe, myself, and special guests.

Those who would like to donate at the VIP level can also join us the next morning (the 10th) at 10am with a reserved seat at our Healing Drum Circle. It will include celebrity guest drummers Alvin Taylor and Franklin Vanderbilt along with first responders, victims of the Tubbs fire, and additional special guests! Drums will be provided as well as a Meet & Greet opportunity with Lauren & I. Plus we’ll have a brunch reception after the drum circle. Hope to see you there! Limited tickets are available now:

12 Drummers Drumming

Raven Drum invited a stellar group of world class drummers, Veterans, first responders and supporters to the beautiful Amazing Grace estate to experience the magic of a drum circle, led by founders Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe. The event was a celebration of the healing benefits of music and community.

The program was filmed and highlights will be included in Musicians On Call’s Veterans Day virtual concert provided to VA hospitals across the country. The full 30-minute program will be offered exclusively to the VA from 11/11 to 12/12 and will culminate in a live zoom call with Rick, Lauren, and special guests. Following that, it will be available across multiple channels and on our partner sites. Thank you to our generous sponsors The Kampf Family, The Fox Family, REMO drums, and The Sessions.
