The Adopt the Arts Gala 2019
The Adopt the Arts Gala 2019 honoring Moby was lit! Beatbox was there to drink it all in and support..
Mat got his first drum set when he was 3 years old. As a child, he was always dismantling things to see how they were made. His great-grandfather predicted Mat’s path as a future innovator declaring, “One day he’s going to be an inventor!” after watching him take something apart. As the drummer of a full-time touring band, Mat was preparing for a cross-country train tour when he was told there would be no house kits at the venues. Faced with the challenge of packing a full-size drum kit across the country on a train, he awoke at one night in a sweat at 4 a.m. when he dreamt he left his snare drum on a train. He jumped out of bed and scribbled his idea on a napkin and Beatbox Drums was born. Since that night, Mat has been non-stop working on making his invention a reality.
