More about the “Grandma Drummer”

By now a lot of you have watched the video of the grandma drummer rockin’ out that we posted to the site earlier today (and if you haven’t, check it out – it’s a hoot). Now we have a bit more info about her, thanks to News8000.com. Turns out she’s been coming in every few days and jamming out to a new tune.

The owners of the Coalition Drum Shop in La Crosse, Wisc. don’t know too much about her except that her name is Mary.

I’m sure this isn’t the last time we’ll see her.

[Thanks, John Daniel]

    That’s my sister Mary Hvizda. 63 years old. She played in many country western bands in her younger days. Still in her blood. She has a voice like Patsy Cline.

      Mrs. Jonas:

      On behalf of Jim, myself and all of our readers, please let your sister know how much we love her video!

    Heck, if YouTube can launch Justin Bieber it can surely launch someone with talent. Go Mary!!! Keep drumming and let’s hear that voice!

    Home of Dave’s Guitar! I haven’t watched the video yet, but now that I know it’s in my backyard, I’ll have to check it out.
