"Drum circles are passé."

Here is what the Stranger newspaper had to say about our performance with the Master Musicians of Jajouka.

Drum circles are passé. Titanium Sporkestra give you the drum octagon. Six drummers and two cymbal-clappers got down on the floor among the customers and brought a Burning Man meets marching band steez to the quarter-filled Neumos.

“Feel free to surround us, feel free to dance, feel free to take your clothes off,” announced the dreadlocked guy in the band. The audience heeded two of those suggestions.

Featuring former Infernal Noise Brigade members, Titanium Sporkestra combine military rhythmic precision with anarchic energy—while wearing gaudy ’70s shades and, in the case of the female bass-drum-pounder, a sliver lamé dress with red leggings. The Seattle troupe’s set was invigorating and mostly bombastic, full of brief episodes of rolling percussive thunder, which sometimes assumed familiar shapes. One piece alternated between the beats of Iggy’s “Lust for Life” and the Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz”—a brilliant idea, as it represents a kind of ultimate hedonistic impulse.

After 30 minutes of boom boom ratatat tokka tokka (clang clang), their machinations resulted in diminishing returns, but for that half hour, Titanium Sporkestra really got the blood flowing. - The Stranger Newspaper

"It was pretty excellent."

A local band called Titanium Sporkestra opened for the Master Musicians. In most bands, the drummer usually hangs out in the back, holding up a song without much fanfare, but these guys are all drums, all the time, and the results were decidedly favorable. We walked in to see about eight people wearing their drums (and silver Kanye glasses), standing in the center of Neumos, hitting the skins like fiends and dancing around while the audience stood in a circle around them and watched. It was pretty excellent. If I see these guys on any bills in the future, I'll alert you. - Sara Brickner

Rising from the ashes of legendary Seattle bands TchKunG! and the Infernal Noise Brigade, Titanium Sporkestra brings a Burning Man meets marching band style to all events. The idea for the band was conceived in 2006 but did not come to fruition until 2007, when it was announced that Honk Fest West, a radical marching band festival, was coming to Seattle. Rehersals began in the cold industrial yards of town and a renegade drumline rumbled to life. We draw our musical influence from all over the world. The majority of our material comes from Historically Black College marching bands here in the United States, however, we also play Japanese Taiko, Indian Bhangra, and African Jajoukan rhythms. All the members of this band come from unique musical backgrounds and we are one big family. We take care of our own and take this band seriously. Right now we are planning a summer 2009 European Tour and look forward to playing all over the world.

Titanium Sporkestra is available for your event. We can play clubs, theaters, corporate events, art openings, bar mitzvahs, weddings, street parties, festivals, parades, community events...
