Boom Goes The Dynamite – Percussion Troupe

 BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE started in 2001 not long after I moved here from Chicago. I began teaching at Girls Inc, The Boys and Girls Club and P.A.L. teaching drums and rhythm classes to kids after school. I used buckets and trash cans and other non-traditional items to create an ensemble to teach rhythm and reading music. After opening THE DRUM STUDIO – SCHOOL OF MUSIC in 2002, I began offering an in house week long summer bucket/ trash can camp. In 2005, the bucket camp gave its first public recital to a sold out crowd at Fogartyville Cafe opening for The Drum Studio All Stars featuring Syesha Mercado on vocals. Every summer I’d hold the summer camp. Last year 2011, “Boom Goes The Dynamite” was officially deemed the name of the troupe. I began offering BGTD as a weekly program with the intention to play in and around Sarasota. We have performed at Giving Hunger the Blues 2012 and Siesta Key Oyster Bar with a warm response. We are scheduling performances through the 2012-13 school year.
