Oral History Information
Lauren Vogel Weiss was playing in the high school band but struggling to find the accessories she needed. This program gave her and her father, Harvey, an idea. Together they formed Lone Star Percussion and worked hard to fill the need of providing instruments and accessories to students and their teachers. The company soon gained respect within the industry, in large part attributed to Lauren's personal attention to the details and in connecting with her customers. Years later she formed her own firm that connected percussionists and clinicians with stores and schools in need. Lauren is also a writer for Percussive Notes (the PAS member magazine), Modern Drummer and Drum Business. Her contributions to the industry continue to be felt and appreciated.
