June 2, 2007 — The “Original” Long Island Drum Center, located in Plainview, NY recently celebrated its 30th Anniversary and invited many of its friends, including Mapex Drums to share in the festivities. From early in the morning until well into the evening the store was packed with customers, artists and well-wishers.

Long Island Drum Center founder, Jerry Ricci, owner Dennis Ricci, and Joe Hibbs of Mapex Drums displaying the commemorative Black Panther snare drum.

As part of the festivities, Mapex A&R Manager, Joe Hibbs presented LIDC owner Dennis Ricci with a one-of-a-kind commemorative Black Panther Snare Drum featuring several “vintage” photos of Dennis and his brother Jerry Ricci throughout the years.

In appreciation for his thirty years of vision and leadership, a special ceremony was held in honor of Jerry Ricci, founding owner of the Long Island Drum Center.

“Today was an unbelievable day, not only from a sales standpoint, but the vibe was great,” added Dennis. “We broke every sales record ever set for the store in the past thirty years. Today was the greatest day in our history and Mapex is one of the reasons why!”

Drumming superstars such as Mapex endorser Will Calhoun as well as Jason Bittner, Nat Townsley, Frank Bellucci, Rod Morgenstein, Bobby Rondinelli, Pablo Nunez, and “Chembo” Corniel were present to show their support and hang with the fans.
