“Vibe-a-licious, Drums-a-Go Go” was inspired by and is dedicated to the great vibraphone players from the 1930s – 1960s, who continue to influence vibe players today. From Red Norvo to Lionel Hampton to Gary Burton, this advanced percussion ensemble will challenge and entertain!
“Vibe-a-licious, Drums-a-Go Go” features a Lionel Hampton/Gene Krupa style drum battle for two or more players (even numbers). For every pair of players added, you need two additional floor toms and one additional cymbal. The players move around in a circle trying to “cut” in front of each other to get their licks in. Have fun battling it out with your floor tom partner. Set the instruments up in a line in front of the ensemble for the best visual effect
