Modern Drummer recently announced enhanced offerings to its family of subscribers including eligibility in unique one-off VIP experiences with drum legends and superstars such as Ringo Starr, Jon Bon Jovi & the Kings of Suburbia, and Maná.

July 7, 2019 – Join Ringo Starr for some “Peace & Love” on his Birthday in Los Angeles! Every year this legend invites the world to join him in creating more Peace & Love, and the call to action is simple: wherever you are at noon your local time, say, think, or post #PeaceandLove. But one lucky Modern Drummer winner and their guest will join Ringo and his family and friends when they celebrate at Capitol Records Studio in L.A. as VIP guests.

August 23, 2019 – Part One of the Sixthman/Modern Drummer Cruise Series: Runaway to Paradise with Jon Bon Jovi. Be a professional drum tech for a day with Kings of Suburbia’s drummer, Rich Scannella, in Barcelona, Spain! You and a guest will depart from Barcelona where Jon Bon Jovi & the Kings of Suburbia will be setting sail. Once on-board for the four-day cruise, you will get to be Rich’s drum tech in preparation for one of the JBJ performances, take a private drum lesson with Rich, and enjoy the show as a VIP.  The lucky winners will get a photo with Jon Bon Jovi and an exclusive Modern Drummer “High Seas Drummers Gig Bag” packed with signed drumheads, sticks, and other drummer essentials. Package includes cruise accommodations for two. Advertisement

As the preeminent ambassador of all things drums and drumming, we feel a great responsibility to bring to our family of readers, not only the best editorial, news, gear, reviews, and education but also the best experiences that a drummer can imagine.”
