Talented trio perform ‘eXplosion’ at River Run Centre Oct. 23

GUELPH, ON October 7, 2016 – Side-splitting comedy and savage drumming virtuosity will combine to create a pulsating energy when BAM! Percussion performs eXplosion at River Run Centre on Sunday, October 23, at 3 p.m. The Main Stage performance is presented as part of the RBC Showcase Series.

Through powerful rhythms and deliriously funny sketches, the three performers who make up BAM! Percussion take their audience on a cross-cultural journey. It’s a show presented in the group’s unique language, “BAM! speech,” spoken solely by its members but universally understood.

“Audiences are drawn to the turbo-charged trio’s explosive drumming, hilarious miming and the unique BAM! nonsensical language,” The St. Albert Gazette said in a review.

Formed in 1999, Quebec-based BAM! Percussion has toured Canada, the U.S., Europe, South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand. In total, BAM! has performed more than 2,500 shows for more than half a million people in 28 countries, winning over audiences at concert halls, theatres and festivals.

From beginning to end, the BAM! Percussion performers who present eXplosion electrify. As those who have seen the trio attest, it’s a 75-minute percussion-comedy extravaganza that will leave the crowd awestruck and cheering for more. In the words of one audience member: “BAM! Percussion’s contagious enthusiasm, vibrant energy and side-splitting comedy created an outstanding and definitely memorable experience for all who attended.”

Tickets to see BAM! Percussion eXplosion cost $32 for adults, $30 for seniors and students and $20 for children 14 and under. $20 uGO tickets are available to university and college students with valid ID. $5 eyeGO tickets are available to high school students with valid ID.
