(That's South African for "Hello, how are you?".
I promise it has nothing to do with acne.)
Welcome to my Patreon page! My name is Cobus (pronounced "kwuh-biss", other notable examples include "Quebec" & "Quidditch").

I started making videos of me drumming along to my favourite songs more than 14 years ago (long before it was cool) and uploading them to YouTube (long before you could make ANY money with it) and since then this has turned into the most amazing journey of my life so far, including moving from a small town in South Africa to Los Angeles to pursue music full time - all entirely thanks to YOU.

I absolutely love playing the drums, connecting with people the world over, and eating cheese.

Why I'm Here

The video above explains things pretty well, so I'll keep this simple: Patreon will make it possible for me to release more videos, more consistently, as well as connecting more with you guys to find out exactly what kind of content you want to see. I LOVE THIS. It's been a long time coming and I'm very excited!

Since I do everything myself (set-up, tuning, miking, recording, mixing, editing, etc) it makes it very time-consuming (and expensive!) to produce high quality videos, which means I can only really do it every few months. I am hoping that Patreon makes it possible for me to do this WAY more often: with the goal being to upload a new video every week.

Where Your Money Goes

Right now, your money will quite literally go towards me paying rent and buying food. I'd love to be able to rent a practice/rehearsal studio where I can leave my drums, cameras, and recording equipment set up all the time - so I can make more videos more often.

If things go well and more patrons sign up, it will make it possible to UPGRADE to higher quality videos, bigger productions, more diverse content, and more community-focused projects (like the YouTube Band Project, or the Re-Cover Music Project). 

How It Works

You have COMPLETE control: you can have a look at the reward tiers, pick what you want, and pledge that amount per month. 

Your support will quite literally make it possible for me to make more of the videos you guys want to see, as well as connecting with you regularly, so I can't thank you enough.

See you on the inside!

When we hit 500 patrons, I will organise and produce an epic and INSANE collaboration with other musicians, YouTubers, and drummers - and the name of EACH PATRON will be featured in this video. Eric Moore, Jared Falk, Casey Cooper, Kristina Schiano, Cole Rolland, Matt Greiner, and Atom Willard have all confirmed, working on getting a few other players to join 😎
