Watch 5-Year-Old Rock the Drumkit on Greta Van Fleet’s ‘Highway Tune’
While much is made about the age of Greta Van Fleet's members, the foursome have already inspired an even younger generation of musicians. Take, for instance, Jacob Nowak, a five-year-old drummer from Detroit who has found his beat with nearby Michigan heroes Greta Van Fleet.
Aaron Nowak posted the video of young Jacob playing his drum set that has been stylized with Jacob's name in a similar font as Greta Van Fleet's logo. The kid nimbly maneuvers around the kit, while wearing his headphones listening to the song. The clip has been shared just shy of two million times since being posted two weeks ago, and it even caught the attention of the band, who tweeted out the video with the response, "This kid is electric."
Danny Wagner, you may have some competition. The Greta Van Fleet drummer recently had to take some time off after playing with an injury that got so bad he was unable to hold his drumsticks. The group had to bow out of New York's Panorama Festival last month as a result, but everything appears to be fine now as the band is in Hawaii for the next two nights playing shows.
They'll continue a North American tour in September, kicking off the run Sept. 7 in Seattle. They also have a European trek starting up in November. See all of their scheduled shows here.
