Event Description

The art of comedy-percussion! From beginning to end, the Blue Barrel Show electrifies the crowd with its powerful rhythms and its deliriously funny sketches. The pulsating energy of BAM is contagious.

The BAM characters, who look like they walked straight out of a mad cartoon, speak a unique language: BAMspeech, spoken only by them, but understood by everyone from 3 to 83 years old. A one-hour performance that will leave the audience with only one wish… MORE!!!

Since 1999, BAM Percussion has performed in over 30 countries making everybody laugh in their own language.

“Audiences love them!” – Josh Gladstone, Artistic Director, The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall.
