SQUID transforms traditional Bagpipe and Drum Band entertainment into a multi-sensory rush of excitement, featuring high energy bagpipes, pop music influences, stunning visuals, and more!
Precision Drummers Squid was founded in fall 2000 by an award-winning group of snare drummers from the Dartmouth Pipe Band Association. They had been exclusively selected for a musical tribute entitled DRUM! which was to be debuted at the Input 2000 media conference in Halifax, NS. With a complement of 8 dancers, 1 bagpiper, and a house band, the response from the international audience was nothing short of legendary.
With the realization that precision drumming was something that held mass appeal, 7 of the drummers decided to form their own drum-corps. The first official performance for the newly conceived Precision Drummers Squid was on the 25th of November 2000, at the Halifax Drumfest. Word of Squid’s unique precision drumming quickly spread and international performances soon followed.
After five years of thrilling audiences everywhere, Squid produced and launched their debut theatre production “SQUID: The Evolution”, a show that is both musically and visually stunning. The Evolution was a giant success and received standing ovations and rave reviews. Squid currently performs all over North America in festivals of all varieties, school assemblies, corporate settings and musical theatre performances.
