The Slam Team – Percussion Show | UK
The Slam Team
Starting within the audience as undercover waiters, audience members or security staff, The Slam Team offers a highly entertaining act. The troupe comprising of 5 talented percussionists creates an incredible spectacle of sight and sound as they present their dynamic and exciting sets of highly choreographed performance. The drummers 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 Slam Team have been touring their show for the last 5 years all over the world. From motor shows in Korea to international conferences at Euro Disney, this hard-hitting percussion show is a top-notch act that will resonate in the minds of the guests long after the event. The guys have played for The Beastie Boys, Avril Lavigne, Eminem, Florence & The Machine, Cicada and Tony Hadley on numerous shows including T4, MTV, Top of the Pops, The Brits, Smash Hits Poll Winners Party, Channel 5 and ITV.
Starting within the audience as staff, audience members or security, The Slam Team melts into the pre-show chitchat, serving or ensuring guest safety. 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. And suddenly they turn the space into a vibrant, percussive experience.
The cast of 5 bright performers and percussionists rock through 4 routines of ear-catching rhythm that will leave your guests gob-smacked.
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.
Standard Length of Performance:
Each performance lasts approximately 7 minutes.
