Mike Portnoy, who is the former drummer of Dream Theater and current member of Sons Of Apollo, took his official Instagram account to share a new post and made a heart-warming announcement.
As you might already know, Deden Noy is an Indonesian Youtuber who has been covering songs with his poor-condition handmade drum kit, and he has been getting lots of interest from the community.
Yesterday, Portnoy announced that he gifted a brand new drum kit to Deden and revealed that he finally got the drums as he shared a picture of the young and talented musician.
Furthermore, Mike pointed out that Deden has an inspiring story and said that he is so glad to deliver such a gift for him. Afterward, he thanked the people who help him to give this gift to the young musician.
Here is what Mike Portnoy said:
“So happy to see that Deden Noy has finally received the drums we arranged for him! His story is inspiring and I’m so glad we could share the gift of drumming with him.
Thanks so much to all at Tama Drums, Tama Drums Indonesia, and Sabian Cymbals for their support in making this happen!”
