Drum Team Collective
If a rock ‘n’ roll team building experience sounds perfect for the people you work with, connect with the Drum Team Collective to (literally) not work and instead bang on the drum all day. This 90-minute indoor program (read: prepare for noise) includes different drum stations you’ll use to play rock ‘n’ roll songs everyone recognizes. Your staff or clients will work together and bond while learning how to create music. Everyone gets a turn at each station. Check out Drum Team Collective for more information and reservations.
