OUR STORY

COPENHAGEN DRUMMERS

A group of enthusiastic, drum playing badasses, created from the passion to discover all aspects of drumming!

The foundation for Copenhagen Drummers was built during our time as constables in the Royal Lifeguard’s Drum Corp. A world full of traditions and history. With a very routine weekly schedule and guidelines for how to play the drums in the guard, we had a need to express all the crazy ideas and thoughts about how drumming could also be performed. It was with those thoughts that Copenhagen Drummers was formed, an environment where the ideas and unique thoughts of how drumming could be made more fun and entertaining was encouraged.

In 2010, the Copenhagen Drummers had the spotlight for the first time, when they made their name in Denmark by winning Talent 2010 through the display of their unique approach to drumming!

In 2013 we shared the stage with Emmelie De Forest in the National Danish Song Contest and were right there with Emmelie De Forest as we took the world by storm when we won Eurovision 2013 and put Denmark on the world map with a fantastic performance!

We have performed more than 1,000 shows both nationally and internationally (France, Germany, India, Sweden, Norway, Russia, Turkey, Thailand, Albania, Switzerland, Netherlands, Egypt, Saudi Arabia etc.). We have opened conferences and parties for some of the country’s biggest companies such as Mærsk, Grundfos, Novo Nordisk, Dong Energi, Lego, and many more.

Precision and discipline play crucial roles in the show and with passion and curiousness we give the audience a performance that combines traditional drum styles with unconventional tools, and the show is spiced up with a certain energy and enthusiasm that other shows cannot compete with! With unique show features within the sound, lighting, and visual effects we give the audience a once in a lifetime experience!

Even before the victory in Talent 2010, Lars Lilholt had contacted us, inviting us to be a part of his summer tour. We happily accepted the invitation and played 35 shows around Denmark at some of the various festivals. It was such a success that we decided to do it all over again next year. 2 summers we will never forget!

We were proud of being able to present our first Denmark tour! ELEMENTS TOUR was a live concert with a duration of 75 minutes, where we brought the audience into our fantasy filled universe. A universe that was created out of our creativity and passion for music and choreography. With energy, ferocity, and humor, as well as elements such as fire, water, soil and air, it was something everyone could relate to. The interaction with lights and sound created a unique atmosphere, that give the feeling of being a part of this universe and history, which was told.
