Never Too Old to Rock Out

If you are ever in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and stop by Coalition Drum Shop, you may be surprised by a special treat. La Crosse has its own celebrity grandmother named Mary Hvizda. This 63 year old woman is a whirlwind on the drums and visits the drum shop every now and then to relive her old, rock and roll days. Fox reports that when Mary was a younger woman, she played the drums for several bands in various genres of music, including rock and roll and country western. She was even a member of the Chantelles, the first all-female rock band from La Crosse. Read more here: http://fox6now.com/2013/07/21/la-crosses-drumming-granny-is-63-year-old-mary-hvizda/
