    Another great trip to Busch Gardens Williamsburg to design and work on the 2016 production of Monster Stomp.

    10-can percussion has had the privilege of participating in several performances throughout April & May. In April we participated in an Earth Day performance of John Luther Adam’s Inuksuit at the Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, TN.
