Matt Mcguire

COUNTRY:  United States

GROUP:  The Chainsmokers


Matt Mcguire, Drummer and Musical Director for The Chainsmokers, is now playing SABIAN Cymbals exclusively. A former member of Bombs Away,  the 25-year-old Australian drummer has become an online sensation, amassing over 1.3 million subscribers on YouTube. His channel features viral cover videos of tracks by Marshmello, Skrillex, The Weekend, Linkin Park, Twenty One Pilots, and The Chainsmokers. In total, Matt has racked up over 233 million views (and still counting), with 54 of those videos eclipsing the 1 million views mark.

Earlier this year, the Chainsmokers announced that their “WORLD WAR JOY” North American headline arena tour would begin in early Fall 2019. The 41-city tour launches late September in Cincinnati, OH, making stops in major arenas across the U.S. and Canada before finishing in Vancouver, BC on December 6. Multi-platinum band 5 Seconds of Summer (featured on the Chainsmokers’ latest single “Who Do You Love,”) and pop star Lennon Stella will be joining them for all the dates.

Check out Matt and The Chainsmokers this fall in a city near you.

Like you – our drummers love to keep it spicy. So our sound specialists work directly with them to build the sounds they need to keep pushing boundaries – sometimes in directions we never could have dreamed of! This is what they’re playing.
