SECRET DRUM BAND is a noise & percussion ensemble that began as a four-piece at Ladyfest in Olympia, WA in 2006.

The ensemble also performs pieces that Schonberg composed with Heather Treadway and Allan Wilson for their trio HITS. SDB currently features Sara Lund [unwound/hungryghost], Allan Wilson [chk chk chk], Heather Treadway [explode into colors], Alison Clarys [tiburones], Anthony Brisson [psychomagic], and Sam Humans [orquestra pacifico tropical], and is often joined by noise musician Eddie Bond [psychomagic] .
