  • Stomp

    I'm going to take a leap of faith here and assume if you are on this forum you have a love for percussion.
    My wife took me to see STOMP at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland Maine today. On a scale of 1 to 5 I'd give the performance a 10! Serious rhythm using every day items (brooms, sticks, sinks, trash cans, truck inner tubes, pots, coffee cans, paint cans, plastic bags,), a bit of tap and dance and just the right dose of comedy. I couldn't keep my body or feet still. If you get the chance check it out.
    There was one performer who had the fastest hands I have ever seen and I'm an old fart and have been watching drummers since I was 7.
    If it comes to your area check it out.

    Stomp is a phenomenal concept, executed with energy and professionalism. I envy you for getting to see it performed live!

        I've only seen it on HBO but was blown away. Wish I could see it live.

          Awesome fun. Seen it twice. Stay out of the front row when they "sweep the stage"

            I have a small problem with Stomp. Very skilled and clever though it is, and very well done, it is not something "new". It was taken from ancient Japanese culture.
            If you ever get a chance to see a film called Zatiochi, which is about a lone Samurai, the last 10 minutes of the film is a big show that is exactly like Stomp in every way.

              i've seen them about 10 years ago in amsterdam and i remeber that it was really good but I have to admit the main thing stuck in mind is that it seemed to be far too long.

                I love Stomp...i have seen them live here in Gbg, and also on telly, additionally, I have bought their DVDs...but the live performance rocked! and rolled...very funny, audience participation, great rhythm...and great dramaturgy: the way they could tell STORIES through percussion was just amazing!

                  I imagine the show has evolved over the years. This was an hour and forty five minutes long with no intermission. Both my wife and I were sorry when it ended but it seemed to last just long enough.

                        I've only seen clips of Stomp but it shows you you don't need to have most tricked out TD-20.

                        At college once, in one of the laundry rooms there was a group of folks banging on the washers, dryers, waste baskets, garbage cans and maybe even a washboard. It was something to see and hear.

                            how about a bin?

                            here you go, Ken, a good friend of mine in waterford.
                            always makes me smile and he was reason enough for me to give it try with drums.

                            and Torann, the group he was with before he came to India, not stomp but fun:
