Welcome to the Pandemonium Drummers!

Charitable amateur performance group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things:

Community events, parades, festivals, happenings, specatulars, stadium performances.
We started life as the Volunteer Drummers in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Big developments ahead in the coming months!

Champion Premiere at Classic Boat Festival 2016

September in London means Totally Thames, and 2016 saw the 8th Classic Boat Festival at the wonderful St Katharine Docks - wonderfully beautiful even in warm September rain.

But the weather did not stop the public to enjoy a 45 minute Pandemonium Drummers performance, getting a taste of what it feels like to be motivated with a selection of cheer drumming songs that we normally use to support runners at marathons or local runs.

Unexpectedly, festival visitors were also treated to a proper premiere:
The first ever drumming performance of our charity single Champion, written by fellow drummer Denis Fernando and produced by Felix Buxton from Basement Jaxx.

Champion was a most appropriate backdrop to one of the yachts coincidentally bearing a Champion flag!

Of course we couldn't leave the stage without a rendition of And I Will Kiss, the song that underlined our performance at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

ABOUTPandemonium Drummers

The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.

Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.

The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
