Epic #Drumathon Moment Two: Cuba Gooding Jr. Brings More Cowbell

Posted June 24

A new week has dawned, but we’re still reeling over here at OMA HQ — remembering epic moments from our 24-hour live music festival/awards show. And a goodly portion of those moments, friends, came from our amazing drumathon, in which Party King Andrew W.K. set a new world record for the longest drum session in a retail store in New York City. Today, we’re primed to share one of our favorite such memories: Specifically, that time when Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. just straight up crashed our drumathon to dole out some cowbell.

Yup, W.K. was starting to wane as night fell that first night of the O Music Awards, but Roots band leader Questlove and Gooding Jr. showed up to keep him motivated for the long evening ahead. Check out that epic moment below and stay tuned for more of our favorite O Music Awards memories.
