113 drummers hit the headlines

It is done!!!

Schlagzeilen 2013 has reached its climax! And not just three drummers did make it to the finals, no, there were 110 of them!!!

Everyone who felt like going on a little Playmobeat cruise with us sent their clips that we processed in an ultimate editing marathon into the big "Schlagzeilen 2013"-Finale. From Australia over Finland up to Brasil – the feedback was overwhelming, and the screening of the submissions alone was pure pleasure!

And here it is – the 12th and final Playmobeat video of the year 2013:


You'll hear from us, Andi, Chris und David

Playmobeat "Schlagzeilen 2013" - Februar

Playmobeat is all about music, creativity and interaction.

Three drummers hit the headlines!

Playmobeat is the fusion of three different grooves and three different characters to a huge drum-spectacle and a whole new world of entertainment: stand-up drumedy!

The band was founded in 2009 and instantly appeared all over Germany’s drum scene due to their unique concept of combining humour and cutting-edge drumming. The story of their success soon led to the release of their first DVD “Transit” in 2010. Inspired both by rhythms and percussion techniques from around the world and by individual experiences from numerous projects, Andi Bühler, Chris Heiny and David Pätsch have compiled hugely creative, often funny, repeatedly surprising arrangements.

Playmobeat is a well-timed concept work of three creative drummers, who with discipline and high-end technique make the essence of playing the drums blossom formidably, discharging a tremendous magic in the process.

The three drummers have been performing at Adam’s Drum World (Netherlands), Dresdner Drumfestival (Germany), BUMfest (Slovenia), International Percussion Festival Luxemburg, Musik Produktiv Trade Fair (Switzerland) and featured all kind of events at their homebase Berlin and all around Germany.

With their hugely creative show, Playmobeat managed to target a large audience, going far beyond “strictly for drummers” horizons.

Their video production “Standup Drumedy” got more than 500,000 views on Youtube so far.

In January 2013, the new project “Three Drummers hit the Headlines 2013” was launched, presenting freshly produced movies of their latest projects and related tutorial videos on their website. A new video was released every month, turning the year 2013 into the official year of Playmobeat!
