For months, performers in the Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble sacrifice their education, jobs, and personal lives to come together and practice, perform, and perfect one eight minute high-intensity drumming show. These performers vary in age, experience, and musical background. The film will follow the Blue Knights from their early rehearsals to their final performance at the world championships in Dayton, Ohio. The audience will experience the spectrum of emotions the performers endure as they strive to fulfill their collective passion. Will the Blue Knights make it or break it when everything is On The Line?
Not only did I get to score our documentary, but I also got to perform in the film’s final performance (I’m the guy with the big afro playing a synthesizer).
