It's a banging break in the monotony outside of a Las Vegas gas station and a rhythmic rest break from day-to-day life. 

"You know that beat. That beat that moves your heart and moves your soul." said one woman."And that beat is what the city is missing," .

Sensing the weak pulse of a city since the 1 October tragedy, Sheriff Drumman decided to pump up his jam sessions.

Drumman rode into town from Los Angeles with his drum kit mounted in the back of his pickup truck. They are embellished with nightclub style lights. He's been drumming since he was a toddler, but it was the heartbreak from two divorces that forced him to really find his groove. 

"They took me from a dark place in life into a place with a whole bunch of lights," Drumman said.

And instead of letting life beat him down; he began traveling to the beat of his own drums. 

 "Music is universal. It keeps everybody together and makes everybody happy."
