This month we had the enormous pleasure of creating a big explosive beat with the company Moneysupermarket at the Clwyd Theatre (nr Chester).  Up to 350 delegates from the company took part in a giant Boomwhacker rhythm event to create the 'feel good factor' at their annual conference.  Here is what Alan Cairns, HR Director for Moneysupermarket had to say about the experience: 'A truly unforgettable experience! We hired Steve and team to build a collegiate vibe in the middle of our "All hands" meeting, Straight Talk. The idea was kept under wraps and in the middle of a particularly challenging question, two orange clad guys wearing African drums leapt out and took over the stage...the looks on some people's faces were priceless! "Boomwhackers" were quickly passed out to the 300 plus strong staff audience and the lesson began: ''this is how your boomwhacker works..'' '

'Within moments a sound of sorts emerged and people really started to get into the vibe. Within a few minutes we were making a fairly passable tune and hearing over 300 people make a syncopated tune was utterly amazing. By the end we were singing African chants and it was clear people really enjoyed themselves. Feedback on the event was excellent and I would heartily recommend Steve and his merry drummers to all. If you're looking for something different and thoroughly stimulating and creative, Unbeatable Energy get my vote!'
