The award-winning, family casual dining restaurant Quaker Steak & Lube is upping the wing game nationwide with the biggest and meatiest indulgence fans can get for National Chicken Wing Day with new Bangin’ Drums! Three times bigger than Quaker Steak & Lube’s famous Jumbo Wings, the new Bangin’ Drums! are prepared to provide the same great taste as the famed wings—with a light breading, fried golden, and flavored by of one of 20 familiar sauces, including award-winning favorites like Kentucky Bourbon Glaze and the newest fan favorite, Smoked Jalapeño Honey.

“We’re going Big. Our new Bangin’ Drums! are enormous—by far the best thing wing fans are going to find on National Chicken Wing Day,” says Andi Rice, marketing director of restaurants for TA Restaurant Group. “No other wing out there even comes close.”

For a limited time only through Sept. 30, Quaker Steak & Lube’s new Bangin’ Drums! will be available for the special price of just $7.49. Select locations will serve up Bangin’ Drums! beginning on National Wing Day, July 29th. Guests can satisfy their craving for the delicious Drums at all participating locations by August 14, and can check local Lube Facebook pages for dates when Bangin’ Drums! will roll into each town. And to drum up even more fun for a great cause, the brand has teamed up with music artist and producer Todd Rundgren, who in 1983 gave us the song “Bang the Drum All Day,” and who in 2013 founded Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony, a non-profit that supports music and music education.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Mr. Rundgren and his Spirit of Harmony music foundation,” Rice adds. “In addition to our award winning food, we’re known for live music and entertainment and are proud to support music education as is he.”

From July 29 through September 30, Quaker Steak & Lube locations nationwide will donate 50-cents for every order of Bangin’ Drums! sold—or at least $10,000—to Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation.

“We believe that every student deserves access to high-quality music instruction and we are dedicated to helping create and nurture sustainable music education programs in schools and organizations throughout the U.S.,” says Todd Rundgren, founder and president of Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony. “Quaker Steak & Lube’s promotion and generosity will help us match resources to needs and create relationships to promote music education.”
