RAW’s original drums came into being during the summer of 2004. Using resources and wine barrels generously donated by Jim Hedges, co-owner of Canadian Oak, a small wine barrel company run out of a farm in St. George, Ontario, RAW members spend many weekends there building the drums themselves. 2004 was also the year that marked many changes for RAW and set the group on an upward journey of renewal and growth, with the new drums representing this dedication and newfound energy. RAW has since acquired new drums and the original wine barrel drums are now used by the high school drummers at RAW’s Harbord Collegiate Institute Taiko Club.
