WHAT IS BLAST II SHOCKWAVE?

Reverberating from the creators of BLAST comes SHOCKWAVE continuing the exciting concept in live entertainment that rocked Broadway and won a Special Tony Award® for "Best Theatrical Event". BLAST redefined musical theater and created a new theatrical experience. SHOCKWAVE continues digging into the music vaults to draw its musical inspiration from the classics, blues, jazz, rock and roll, and Broadway. Unlike the symphony, the cast is in constant motion, executing intricately choreographed drill movements while performing two hours of music on brass, percussion and a special group of woodwind instruments, electronic percussion and cell phones. Just like BLAST, SHOCKWAVE has no storyline but is a musical journey that combines music, movement and color. As in opera and musical theater, the performers act, dance, and sing.

SHOCKWAVE'S musical arrangements include Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child," to contemporary songs like "Uninvited" by Alanis Morissette and "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. Buddy Rich's signature piece, "Channel One Suite," and "Prelude Fugue and Riffs" by Leonard Bernstein are some of the popular classics that audiences of every age will enjoy.

HOW IS BLAST II SHOCKWAVE DIFFERENT FROM BLAST?

BLAST was a totally new theatrical event created from Drum and Bugle Corp's outdoor pageantry. One difference, is that SHOCKWAVE adds woodwind instruments to the traditional brass used in BLAST. Where BLAST was derived from Drum and Bugle Corps, SHOCKWAVE comes from a Stan Kenton progressive big band style. The musical selections include more jazz and international flavors. The visual ensemble will use more traditional dance styles intermixed with the "color guard" style using flags in styles specifically created for SHOCKWAVE.

Blast II Shockwave's USA tour has come to an end!
