The Nebraska Performing Arts Hall of Fame is proud to induct Cathy Lohmeier and her families rock club, The Drumstick into the Nebraska Performing Arts Hall of Fame. Cathy is the younger sister of brainchild Tim “T.L.” Lohmeier, who developed the famed Lincoln, Nebraska rock club The Drumstick amidst his families Chicken restaurant. You can watch the induction via our Facebook page or via the Nebraska Performing Arts YouTube page.

Cathy, after moving back to Nebraska a few years back, followed her heart and produced this fabulous documentary film called ‘Remember the Drumstick’, that encompasses these amazing rock memories, moments and sounds of the times, that featured such groups as Joan Jett, Luther Allison, Red Hot Chili Peppers, REM, Dwight Yoakum, Jason and the Scorchers and more. The Drumstick, or as some called simple “The ‘Stick”, also played a huge role in budding local Nebraska bands as well, which spawned such great acts like Charlie Burton and Rock Therapy, The Boys, The Copy Cats and so many more.

All day long, it was also one of Lincoln’s finest chicken spots, offering some of the areas best fried chicken and Texas Toast. But, when the sun went down, the amps turned up…and history was made.

Charitable donations to the Nebraska Performing Arts Hall of Fame will be asked to continue these types of streams and inductions, as well as any donations towards The Drumstick film project that’s hoping to release sometime in the next year. We appreciate your support all around!
