What Disability? We're just drummers from Down Under drum clinic presented by Dr Paradiddles Wonder Drumporium, Just Music Berlin and Can-Do Musos, featuring all Australian drummers on one night at the Sky Live Club on top of Just Music Berlin, Germany.

If you do one thing for Andrew Hewitt on this International Day of People with Disability, it is this: park your sympathy at the door.
