Thursdays 4:20 - 5:15 PM Thursdays 5:15 - 6:10 PM Ongoing The Thunder Drums program is a modernized manifestation of a vision that I had when I was 14 years old. Every drummer would play every instrument and switch instruments in between songs and all the songs would transition, or link up like the cars of a train. The drums would be stationary, but it would be the drummers that moved around the drums without being physically attached to them. This enables the music to go on for hours at a time. It is very original, diverse, eclectic, tribal. It’s very personal to me as the composer/director/choreographer. It is designed for staged performances with lights, sound, staging, choreography, costumes, special effects, multi-media and themes. It can also be a stripped down pop-up performance at any location imaginable. Nobody really dives into the theatrical side of performance like we will and it really helps separate us from the pack. So when a “drumline” marches around with their drums attached to their body like everyone is accustomed to seeing, we dance around the stationary Drums and have movement in ways that a drumline cannot. Couple that with the fact that our music was intentionally written to be performed in a completely different way, shape and form than anything that the audiences have or experienced before. This is why I cannot identify what Thunder Drums does as a “drumline”, rather we would like to be identified as a tribe of drummers that play music and entertain in the same way that an energetic music group would perform on a large stage at a music festival. A legit music act as opposed to a football game ornament. The kids bring to life an experience that is not available to any other venue in the entire world. We are in a category all our own. Concurrent enrollment in private lessons with me is required for participation in Thunder Drums. We are Thunder Drums! Thunder & Drums, Trevor Detling
