Vegas Vanguard: More Than Just a Drumline

Some days they dress up as scientists, other days as anarchists.  And some days they like to strap on flashy swords and fight like gladiators.  But either way, Vegas Vanguard Percussion loves to put on a good show.  The student drumline plays everything from drums to synthesizers, cowbells, and gongs.  And their shows look more like action films than drumming.  The drumline tells us about the hundreds of practice hours, how they design a show about " anarchy," and give us a special in-studio performance.
