Making it's debut in 1999, the Broadway production Blast! was first to feature drum & bugle corps on the stage. Originally the Star of Indiana Drum and Bugle Corps, the innovative Blast! show brought the brass, percussion, and color guard of a marching band into a musical-theater setting.
Full Percussion Ensemble
Although comprised of primarily drum corps instruments, Blast! also features concert-style instruments which help create it's unique blend of sound.
The extent of personnel involved in the show combined with the difficulty of the music and choreography make Blast! a truly compelling production.
(As of the 2002 season Blast! added woodwind instruments to their shows.)
