Narrowing down a street art like bucket drumming is a little like trying to find the first example of graffiti: There are examples all over the world of the art form, and the real “first” is probably undocumented. Some bucket drummers go as far back as the Civil War, when 13-year-old volunteers would play drums on their dinner buckets.

International examples abound, as well — drummer Frisner Augustin recalled playing on a plastic bucket during his childhood in Haiti in the 1950s and ’60s.

Factored into that are considerations of when exactly plastic buckets were invented. As plastic became a more common material in the ’50s and ’60s, inventors like Earl Tupper (of Tupperware fame) helped plastic become more mainstream. Early patents, like this 1967 one for a plastic bucket, also helped, and people probably considered hitting them the second they bought one.

That said, American bucket drumming is surprisingly easy to track to one key person.
