Sparklers – LED percussion band | UK
Sparklers are a group of LED drummers that will seriously excite your guests! These corporate entertainers will make a huge impact at any corporate event or private function. They have a unique look and sound fantastic. They have been amazing audiences all over the world and now you can hire them for your event.
Sparklers is a show performed by seven characters that combines high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful lighting design. The performance incorporates static set-pieces, movement between sites and audience interaction. The performers constantly shift the focal point of the show and sometimes surround the audience completely so they feel immersed in the drama which unfolds. The show gradually builds in intensity culminating in a huge climax of light, sound, smoke and movement.
Sparklers is a very engaging and flexible show that works brilliantly outdoors and indoors. It is stunning by night and magical by day and works well from small-scale venues up to large town squares. It is perfect for corporate events and product launches and can be easily branded to the client’s colours. It also features amazing music and movement and is ideal for international audiences and an optional pyrotechnic finale can be offered.
Sparklers is a highly adaptable medium scale show which has been designed to work in a number of different settings. The show will work as a site specific static piece and as a moving performance. It will typically be performed as a combination of both. Listed below are our requirements for several different settings. If these do not fit with your vision then please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
A large open, traffic free area like a pedestrian street, town square, marketplace or park. Sparklers can work across and move between multiple sites in such an area. The minimum space for a static performance in the street is 10m x 10m but the ideal space would be 15m x 15m. Whilst moving between performance sites Sparklers will adapt to the space available, e.g. the group can move in single file down a path or pavement or spread out to fill a wide road. Sparklers is a loud rhythmic performance so do not situate the show close to other acts.
In a Parade
In a carnival parade Sparklers should not be placed near to other musical acts in the parade. The ideal space would be 5m width by 10m length. The configuration of the performers can be adapted to suit the available road width and space between groups. During the parade Spark! will adapt to the space available, e.g the group can move in single file down a path or pavement or spread out to fill a wide road.
This applies to indoor or outdoor events. The minimum stage size needs to be 5m deep x 12m wide with step or ramp access. The show is appropriate for international audiences of all ages. Audience numbers are limited only by the physical environment in which the show is performed and variables such as the height of staging.
Daylight & Night Time Shows
During daylight hours Sparklers is a beautiful and dynamic show with the performers’ costumes capturing and reflecting every bit of ambient light and colour.
Night Time Show:
The high powered lights which are built into the costumes and drums will look most effective after dark (or indoors). Night time shows should be scheduled no earlier
than sunset time on the day of the performance. Street lights will not impact on the performance.
Sparklers recommend booking a daytime and a night time performance for maximum impact.
Sparklers’ musical repertoire is made up of original percussive music written specifically for the show.
Standard Length of Performance:
On the street: up to 70 minutes combining site specific static performances and movement between performance sites.
In a parade: up to 90 minutes.
On stage: up to 20 minutes. A stage performance will work well as the finale to a parade or street performance or can be performed as a standalone piece.
A minimum of 1 hour break between each show will be needed and a maximum of 2 shows per day.
Warm up and setup time is 3.5 hours and set down is 75 minutes.
Sparklers will need a minimum of 2 stewards to accompany the group during the show, and during any movement between performance sites. The Sparklers performance involves a lot of movement in which the audience are required to move and the responsibility of the stewards will be to ensure that the audience are a safe distance from the group at all times. This includes preventing audience members from wandering between the performers and shepherding the audience as the performers move. It is the responsibility of the event organisers to supply enough stewards for the projected number of audience members.
