This amazing troupe of percussionists create an incredible spectacle of sight and sound as they present their dynamic and exciting sets of highly choreographed performance.

Customize the show to fit your theme with company logos, products or props.

The players use all sorts of objects to fuse together driving arrangements played on ladders, traffic cones, cars, exhausts, wheels, windows and anything else they can get their hands on!

The Show:

Starting within the audience as staff, audience members or security, the Slam! artists melt into the pre-show chitchat, serving or ensuring guest safety.

Drummers Undercover

The leading member of the team takes a well-timed fall and discovers the percussive possibilities of his spilled tray.

Brushing aside offers of help from the audience the downed artist comes to life as a funky stylish drummer. From all four corners the security staff replies in percussive answers to the lead players call.

Team Building ideas

And suddenly they turn the space into a vibrant, percussive experience!

This cast can involve anything that the guests or client requires in their breath-taking shows (personal items, company goods etc).

Hilarious audience participation

Our cast of 5 bright performers and percussionists rock through 4 routines of ear-catching rhythm that will leave your guests gob-smacked.

Note:

These routines are drum led and incorporate the striking of wood.

Poles are used in 2 routines where they are played on the floor.

The show will need a PA for the blisteringly funky backing track

Ben Turner

After asking for a Drum Kit for his 12th Birthday and then receiving a rather negative reply, Ben quickly realised that by hitting anything (especially his Mum's best saucepans) was a fantastic way to get his own back and to discover new sounds all around the house.

After graduating from The London College of Music, Ben started freelancing as a workshop leader and education specialist along with continuing his professional playing. 

Ben loves performing in the Slam! shows as they uniquely combine his skills as a performer and a percussionist, plus he gets the chance to hit things as hard as possible whilst shouting like a banshee!
