This Drummer Makes Buckets Sound Incredible

Jared Falk  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

Matthew Pretty – aka The Bucket Boy – is a street drummer who travels around the world using unconventional sound sources to create incredible rhythms.

He treated us to a creative performance at NAMM with buckets, pots and pans. The next time someone says “you can’t be an amazing drummer without a drum kit”, show them this video!

(And just wait until it all drops into that backbeat at 3:43.)

Jared Falk is a lifelong drummer, drum teacher, and the co-founder of Drumeo. For over 18 years, Jared has been a leader in the online music education industry, publishing his first online video lessons in 2003 and founding Musora in 2005.
