(BLOOMINGTON) - "Saturday Night Live" band drummer Shawn Pelton has donated a drum kit he used on the set of the program to his alma mater, the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

Pelton earned a music degree from the Jacobs School in 1985 and joined the "Saturday Night Live" band in 1992.

He also regularly appears as the drummer in the concert series "Live From Daryl's House." He's performed and recorded with artists such as Johnny Cash, Elton John, Sheryl Crow, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

Pelton says the Jacobs percussion faculty "is a real dream team that offers everything for an aspiring performer."

Jacobs percussion department chairman John Tafoya says the donated drum set will be used by students in various performances.
