Mix slapstick comedy with explosive, over-the-top percussion action and you've just seen a BAM Percussion show! From beginning to end, you'll be electrified by the performers' powerful rhythmic abilities and deliriously funny sketches. The characters, who look like they walked straight out of a cartoon, speak a unique language: BAMspeech, spoken only by them, but understood by everyone from 3 to 83. Not to be missed!
Steve Burman, Jean-Sebastien Dallaire, and Frederic Gauld created BAM in February 1999. Between 1999 and 2005, BAM Percussion’s first production, The Blue Barrel Show, toured Europe, Asia, Africa, and New-Zealand. In 2006 in Philadelphia, BAM Percussion unveiled eXplosion, their new indoor production, that brings together physical comedy and high energy percussion. With the participation of Denis Richard Jr. and Vincent Boudreau, BAM Percussion has toured in 28 countries on 5 continents. In 2011, BAM Percussion welcomed Krystina Marcoux, who takes over for Vincent Boudreau. Today, BAM continues to grow on an international level while perfecting their art, to offer a high-quality product available worldwide.
