grannyLA CROSSE, WI – A drumming grandma went viral when a Wisconsin drum shop posted video of her wailing away.

In less than two days, more than one-million people watched a YouTube video titled “grandma drummer.”

Still no one knew Mary’s last name or her story. Until now….

The star on the drums is none other than 63-year-old Mary Hivzda.

Turns out she’s been playing for over 40 years, but just picked back up the sticks randomly in that drum shop — her first performance in over a decade.
