Chris Brady of Brady Drums is celebrating his 75th birthday soon and I've copied a message below on behalf of Kelly Brady as she's locked out of her account (Kelly is Chris' daughter). This is a surprise so please don't email him if you have his contact information. Message below:
"Calling all owners of Brady snares and drum kits...
My Dad, Chris Brady, turns 75 in January. Since his retirement 7 years ago, it's become abundantly clear: drummers around the world LOVE their Brady gear, and Dad really doesn't comprehend the reach and impact his creations have had.
For his milestone birthday, I invite all Brady owners you to record a short 30-60 second video of yourself with your Brady gear (no, you don't have to play anything). Just say a little about the history of your Brady gear &/or what they mean to you, and wish him a happy 75th birthday.
This will be a surprise from all of us to him. Dad's not on social media, but if you could, help keep this surprise secret from him. He would be delighted to see everyone again and how much you all enjoy the drums he handcrafted for you over 35 years.
Please also tag your fellow Brady owners in the comments section. We'd love to get as many drummers from around the world to participate by December 30.
Here is how it works:
1. Input your Brady gear into the Brady owners registry at http://www.bradydrums.com.au/registry
2. You will receive a private email address to submit the video to.
3. Record your video and email the video to the private video submission email address
4. Dad will receive the master file on his birthday in January 2023.
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
