The Weapons of Sound formed in 1993 and has carved a unique and novel pathway for everyone who wants to feel the passion and energy of a musical performance. By creating their own instruments there are no limits to what can be created sonically. With the dawn of the new millennium, as the Earth’s resources are being lessened day by day, the Weapons of Sounds carry a clear message to the world that it is possible to create a pulsating, enjoyable, musical masterpiece without any environmental abuse whatsoever. This sentiment is certainly a wide felt one as the band have traveled extensively and been commended for their ability to find levels and ingenuity in music, as well as being the foremost innovators of junk funk.’
Weapons of Sound is a thriving and successful entertainment act, with a hard working team of professional workshop leaders and polished junk percussionists, skilled and experienced in working with any group size for any occasion (be it a workshop in a school or an onstage interactive performance for thousands of people). Performance highlights to date include Weapons of Sound playing at The Champions League Final in Paris (May 2006), by royal appointment at The Queens Jubilee Party celebration at Buckingham Palace (summer 2002) and kicking off the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Manchester (2002).
Travelling the world over the innovative group dazzle and motivate audiences with their jaw dropping show and inspire people of all ages with their encompassing workshops. WOS are proud of the work that they do spreading the message that anyone of any age or ability can have a go at drumming….. On anything!!
