If you’ve ever had the opportunity to experience the Blue Man Group’s theatrical performance, you know just how soulful, energetic, and entertaining it can be. If not, the above video of the trio performing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2006 perfectly captures the Blue Man Group’s gift for art, musicianship, and entertainment. Based around the art of drumming, the Blue Man Group combines music and rhythm with technology, comedy, and visual art.
The Blue Man Group keeps audiences entertained with inventive and comedic musical performances, which include drum-heavy music, shadow drumming, pipe drumming, and the hilarious, rhythmic, and artistic paint drumming, in which two of the men pour paint onto a set of drums played by the third man. With each hit of the drums, paint explodes into the air. They even bring out a piece of canvas for an inventive form of Pollock-esque painting.
The Blue Man Group’s energy-infused performance also includes audience interaction, whether with the group itself or among audience members. The euphoric experience will leave you feeling alive and closely connected to the people around you. And the best part is that this show is for everyone! With no spoken language, the Blue Man Group’s show is ideal for all ages, languages, and cultures.
