About THUD

Welcome to our Patreon page!
Thank you so much for visiting. We are THUD (The Harvard Undergraduate Drummers): a student organization at Harvard College. Each semester, we work to spread the joy of unconventional percussion to the Cambridge community and beyond! 

The best way to get a sense of our work is to visit our YouTube Channel (if you haven't already). In 2018, we started creating and uploading content solely for YouTube, and have been amazed by the overwhelming support, especially for boomwhackers and paint drumming. Moving forward, we plan on increasing the frequency of boomwhacker videos as well as continuing to upload our experiments with other forms of alternative percussion.

Community Involvement
In addition to our YouTube presence, THUD maintains a "percussive commitment" to fellow Harvard students and local citizens. We put on a live show every semester that fuses drama, comedy, and, of course, percussion to create a magical experience like no other. We also collaborate throughout the semester with other student groups, and volunteer at local (and distant!) schools to give kids interactive music lessons. If you're ever in the area, we'd love to have you join us for one of our events! Check out our website for more information.

How You Can Help
We would greatly appreciate your support in this journey. As the group continues to break percussive barriers in Cambridge and on YouTube, we hope to invest in better film and audio equipment and purchase new percussion instruments. The group itself also requires funding for (i) the costs associated with traveling to gigs and schools, (ii) reserving a venue and hiring a cinematographer for our shows, and (iii) costumes (like the cowboy costumes in this boomwhacker video, for example). Because we only get a small cut of the ad revenue from our popular boomwhacker videos due to copyright claims, support on Patreon would help defray these costs tremendously! 

Thank you
We really cannot thank you enough for the support. It has been an incredible journey and we can't wait for what's to come. Thank you!

Are we a cult?
