Bob Kasha, the founder of Big Bang Distribution, embarked on a remarkable journey that started with his love for drums. In 1971, he received his first drum kit, igniting a lifelong passion. With determination and a thirst for knowledge, Bob sought guidance from more than 15 drum teachers, honing his skills alongside his involvement in baseball and achieving the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts.
Bob's talents as a drummer quickly blossomed, and at the young age of 18, he began teaching drums under the guidance of his original drum teacher. Word spread, and within a year and a half, Bob's student base grew to over 80 aspiring drummers. Recognizing the need for a centralized learning space, he assisted his teacher in opening a drum shop, seamlessly transitioning his students to the new studio.
During this time, Bob pursued a music degree at Cal State Northridge, where he auditioned for the highly competitive music department, earning one of only four coveted spots. However, Bob discovered that his true calling extended beyond being solely a music teacher. With a drive to broaden his horizons, he shifted his studies to business law, setting the stage for future entrepreneurial endeavors.
Bob's journey continued to evolve as he opened his own music store, ABK Rocks. (Highlight the growth and expansion of the store here.) Through these ventures, Bob connected with renowned drummers and key players in the industry, establishing a solid reputation within the music community.
An extraordinary opportunity emerged when one of Bob's drum students, Rick Grossman, sought his advice on drumstick design. Collaborating with Rick, Bob utilized his expertise to create the ergonomic drumstick—a game-changing innovation. Joined by Easton Sporting company, they introduced the AHEAD brand of drumsticks, marking the birth of Big Bang Distribution and establishing Bob as a visionary leader in the distribution realm.
Drawing on his extensive experience and values, Bob Kasha and the Big Bang Distribution team have created a company centered on personalized service and unwavering support. Their commitment to supporting retailers, customers, and manufacturers has earned them a reputation for being a reliable and respected presence within the industry.
