"We hired BOOM! Percussion for the Grand Opening of a large Las Vegas tradeshow. They over-delivered at every opportunity. The group arrived early, making sure our entire experience was stress-free.

The performance itself was unbelievable! The entire audience was fixated on the group, with  many pulling out cameras to record the show.
Best of all, when the Grand Opening was over, BOOM! just continued to play to further entertain the audience.

They were a huge hit and set the mood for our entire event. Thank you, Michael and the entire team at BOOM!"

"I could not be happier that I found Boom through Gigmasters. They performed for 1500 health care professionals at a conference and created a choreographed performance for 15 drummers all in the timeline of three weeks. 

The talent they recruited were extremely impressive and they had fantastic energy/chemistry as a group. They provided such a special moment for the conference and we received great feedback from the conference attendees. 

The team was prompt and very flexible with an ever changing event schedule. I highly recommend Boom and hope to use them again!"
