Blood Drums

This weekend I took my family to “The Haunt,” a special Halloween event that takes place at Kings Dominion Amusement Park each year. We are Season Ticket holders so we love going to the park which is only a 30-minute drive from our house. This year we saw an amazing drum corps show put on called “Blood Drums.” You can figure out that the show was ghoulish looking street drummers beating the hell out of 50-gallon trash cans, steel drums, buckets, bongos, a double bass drum kit, and even a washer which they used grinders on. They never stopped playing for 15 minutes straight and their chops and endurance was very impressive. Adding to the mystique was a scantily clad girl spinning various fire objects in time with the rhythms. Blood Drums won “Drum Ensemble of the Year” by Drum Magazine. They have teams performing shows around the country at various amusement parks from now until the beginning of November. If you have the opportunity to see this show I cannot recommend it highly enough. “Blood Drums” will get your heart pumping blood. For more information visit their website.
