Drummers bring a vibrancy to any event, and create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere that brings a smile to the faces of all guests.
The Drum Waiters’ performances and rhythms can be used to enhance many different types of event, from brand product launches to conferences, family fun days to festivals, not to mention large sporting fixtures at which they have performed many times in venues such as the Millennium Stadium Cardiff, Twickenham, the Ricoh Stadium, Madejski Stadium, St.James’s Park Newcastle, The Stoop and Beziers stadium, France.
The group play their own rhythms and beats, but can also play along to recorded music, mime and be choreographed by an external producer if required. They are able to incorporate members of the audience into their performances if desired.
So why not bring your event or product launch to life with energetic and vibrant drums beating out a rhythm loud and proud to attract attention? From as few as two to twenty or more, drummers always give an uplifting feeling to the proceedings. People invariably start to tap along and take a keener interest in what’s going on when the drummers perform on, in, beside or around the new product.
The drummers and drums can be branded too, as the following companies have done:
For the annual British 10 K Fun Run sponsors Tiger Balm wanted a celebration as the runners passed through Trafalgar Square. We branded up 10 of our water butts, donned tiger onesies and kept the beat for a couple of hours as 20,000 runners passed us by…!
Carlsberg Conference St.Petersburg
As well as drums the group can use percussion, junk or even play the venue or product. For an event for Carlsberg in Russia they created a Carlsberg drum kit using branded water butts that looked like giant cans. With coloured water flying off the tubs each time they were struck the visual as well as aural effect was stunning.
Burberry Brit Rhythm Launch
For the launch of Burberry’s Brit Rhythm fragrance a piece of drum music was commissioned and written by Gary Powell, drummer with The Libertines. We provided 22 drummers to work closely with Gary to bring this to life, and choreographed a show that was performed before an invited audience of 500 people at the launch party, using a whole host of bass drums, timbales, snare drums and tom toms.
The number of drummers performing can be tailored to the size and requirements of the event. For many years 8 – 12 drummers have performed a show on the pitch at the Heineken Cup semi-finals before the match, culminating in forming a “drummers tunnel” for the players to run onto the pitch through.
