I discovered that many female drummers are working professionally behind the scenes, perhaps not as celebrated as their male counterparts, but just as skilled and accomplished.
I also discovered that there was a dedicated magazine for female drummers, Tom Tom Magazine.
While in the past female drummers were a rarity,
The group organises socialising events and opportunities to meet, go to concerts and talk drums.
