Daily Fill #112: Michael Levine – 6 Figure Drum Tech


Welcome to the Tuesday edition of the Daily Fill with our Owner and founder Richard Ducat! Every Tuesday Richard gives us a dose of motivation, guidance, life hacks, marketing tips, and more!

On today’s episode, we are back with week 5 of the Drumtrepreneur series featuring special guest Michael Levine! You may remember Michael from episode 15 of the Drummers I Like Podcast back in 2016! Today I wanted to bring Mike on to talk about the business of drum tech and what it takes to successfully do this full time. I’ve always enjoyed the role of drum tech for a million reasons but the one that stood out the most was the ability to network, create passive income, and take long extended breaks. I loved the idea of setting yourself up for 365 days of working between different bands. You get to travel, meet new people, eat new foods, see beautiful venues, explore amazing territories and the best part is that you get to do it with your best friends. I always considered it the new “secret millionaire” and after catching up with Mike a few weeks back I knew he was perfect to launch month 2 of the Drumtrepreneur series. This episode is full of extremely valuable information that will help you get a grip on the drum tech world.

A few things we cover in this episode:

Getting your foot in the drum tech door: Mike breaks down the specific steps that led to him getting his first gig along with what it took to ensure a year of employment on the road.

The worst experience Mike’s ever had: Mike breaks down his worst drumtrepreneurial experience in a detailed story of a wasted flight and an opportunity that was broken, to begin with.

Maintaining your income stream: We get deep into the idea of multi-band touring and what it takes to ensure your income stream throughout the entire year.
