Born in New York,
Frank Zummo began drumming around age 3, when he discovered his father’s drum kit. By age 7, he was an award-winning drummer, taking home top prize in Long Island Drum Centers “Battle of the Beats”. Looking at Zummo’s impressive resume, it’s clear to see he never stopped. Zummo has performed on many TV shows over the years (The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien Show, Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, American Idol & Glee). He has also recorded on many platinum & gold records with artists including Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi, Gary Numan & The Used as well as on scores for the films “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World” and “Beautiful Creatures.” Additionally, he has played for bands such as Julien-K, Dead By Sunrise (ft. Chester Bennington) and even filling in for injured Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee during 2009’s Crüe Fest 2.
The immensely talented drummer of punk-rock band Sum 41, EDM duo Krewella, and Street Drum Corps is part of the SJC Drum family. Frank and SJC partnered with Shepard Fairey, American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, and founder of OBEY to create a custom drum kit. Finished by Shepard Fairey and titled “Rise Above,” the one-of-a-kind drum kit now resides at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The drum kit was used by Frank Zummo from 2016-2017 during Sum 41’s U.S. and Canada tours, festivals and the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards where Frank took home the award for Best Drummer and performed an epic battle with Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots) and Adrian Young (DREAMCAR / No Doubt). The drum kit will remain at Hard Rock Hotel for the next three years with another portion of the kit taking up residence at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH.
