Every year, the Boardman High School drumline hosts a Drum Night. Tom Ruggieri says the “drum jam” is almost entirely student led. What is Drum Night you may ask? To answer that, Drum Night is where several schools meet up and have a “drum off.” Each school has a certain set time to run through a few of their best pieces. After every other school plays, it’s Boardman’s turn. Boardman’s percussion, which is much bigger than any other school’s, has 27 kids. Mason Rassega, Shawn Korpi, Noah Robinson, Mikey Kanos, and Mary Garrett are the seniors who lead the younger percussionists.
