Director Statement

The documentary, “Remember the Drumstick”, is focused on the main character, Tim Lohmeier, an exceptional young man with an intuitive ear for musical genius. He becomes the catalyst for the transformation of a family chicken restaurant to an iconic rock club. Themes include the circumstances for the transformation, and its effect on his family, the town, the music scene, the patrons. The memories of the musicians: their lives on the road and their unforgettable relationships with Tim are all there, ready to be explored. The producer/director, Catherine (Cathy) Lohmeier, Tim’s younger sister, is uniquely qualified to tell this story through interviews, music, and the few Drumstick artifacts that remain. The documentary itself is her brainchild and she has had tremendous success gathering the talent needed to complete the project. Those who were there--fans, family members, musicians, friends--have been enthusiastic subjects.
