“You and the boys did a fantastic job, pitched perfectly for the audience, and not in the easiest of venues. The number of mentions you’ve had in the last 24 hours has been countless and I will carry a number of the images of smiling faces around the room with me for some while. Thank you, and I’m sure we will work together again.”
Jonathan Crookall, Specsavers
There is always a fair amount of audience involvement in a Drum Waiters performance, with guests invariably clapping, tapping and whooping along.
But for some clients a higher degree of audience participation is a requirement, and for them the Drum Waiters can provide either a variety of drums and percussion or boomwhackers for guests to play along on. Boomwhackers are coloured plastic tubes that are struck on the hand (or any other part of the body!) and play musical notes. They are lightweight, great fun and easy to distribute quickly to guests at their tables once the Waiters have performed their floor show.
Non-musicians can be turned into a wonderful sounding musical boomwhacker orchestra in a very short space of time, and other activities include imitating Japanese drumming and creating the theme tune to Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, which sounds fantastic as it gets faster and faster..
It is also possible to provide drums and a variety of percussion instruments to be used by guests, and for the really adventurous some world music singing and dancing can be orchestrated too…

Thank you so much for the show - it was fantastic. You and your guys worked so hard to make sure everyone had a great time and we certainly did. So many people have talked about your performance, it really was a hit.
I am so grateful to you for fitting into the evening so easily, I know that there were lots of ‘I don’t knows’ before the event, and thank you for being so flexible. The clients really enjoyed your show as did we and I do hope that there will be a chance to get you all back here in the near future.
