Dixon May Fair 2014

Procrastinators make music out of junk

By From page DMF29 | May 04, 2014

DIXON — Imagine three friends strolling through town when one stumbles upon a collection of musical junk.

This stage show is just that – found percussion played on stage – performed by professional musicians. Influences from Africa, Brazil, Japan, Latin America, hip-hop and drum line are heard throughout the show, where everything from bar stools to trash cans to shopping carts are put to use.

The three outrageous drummers turn five-gallon water bottles, bar stools and pots and pans into legitimate musical instruments while jumping, sliding, twisting and stomping their way through several minutes of fast and furious rhythmic fun.

You will discover The Procrastinators on the main gate courtyard plaza or hanging out around the next corner during the fair.
