Back by popular demand, Street Drum Corps Presents BANG! is a high energy drumming trio hailing from Los Angeles, CA. known for their unique blend of amazing percussion skills with ordinary found objects. Street Drum Corps uses instruments such as hand drums, acoustic drum kits, buckets, kitchenware, recycled aluminum, garbage cans, marching band equipment, a Moog Theremin, and whatever else is within eye's range, to create a drumming experience. In past performances, they have enjoyed the company on stage with members of STOMP, No Doubt, Bad Religion, Good Charlotte, 30 Seconds to Mars, and of course, their good buddies in The Used. Your students will participate by creating rhythms of their own and come away energized and with an enhanced appreciation for percussion.
The Dennos Museum Center offers educational performance experiences that align with your performing arts appreciation curriculum. Educational Performances vary by performer, but generally include short performances, interactive sections with singing, clapping or other activities, and some discussion of the genre of music or culture of the performers.
Educational performances take place in the Milliken Auditorium at the Dennos Museum Center and are approximately 50 minutes in length. All attendees of performances in the Milliken Auditorium are welcome to visit the Museum galleries to view exhibits before or after the workshop. Guided tours are available on a limited basis during these times due to the large number of students in the building. If you would like a printed gallery guide or activity for the students during this time please contact us ahead of time to make arrangements. Call (231) 995-1029 to book your class!
The fee for educational performances is $6 per seat. Teachers and chaperones are not free for educational concerts and must pay the $6 per seat fee. All groups must pay by the date of the performance. Groups that pay at least two weeks before the date of the performance will receive a discounted rate of $5 per seat. Pricing is based on the number of seats reserved. Refunds are not available for unused seats.
Scholarships through the Dennos Museum Center may be available if you are unable to cover the costs of your visit.
The Street Drum Corps presentations are supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art, with additional contributions from Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, General Mills Foundation, and Land O'Lakes Foundation.
