Tin Drum Music Donates to Local School Music Programs

We at the California Jazz & Wine Festival have many reasons to be thrilled about our partnership with local recording label Tin Drum Music. Foremost, of course, is the invaluable work they do to organize the festival’s jazz music performances. But we’re especially proud of their commitment to giving back to our local community: a portion of the profits collected from the festival will be donated to schools in and around Thousand Oaks to purchase equipment for their music programs. 

Tin Drum Music is the work of local musicians Burleigh Drummond and Mary Harris. Drummond, a founding member of and long-time percussionist for the band Ambrosia, and Harris, a keyboardist and singer who has appeared with many notable acts including Ambrosia, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band, Animal Logic, and more, formed their own ensemble, Tin Drum, in 1994. Tin Drum Music grew out of their collaborations with other outstanding musicians and a deep desire to promote this music worldwide.

So join us at the California Jazz & Wine Festival, listen to Tin Drum and other great performers, and know that you’re contributing to our local school music programs!
