We are a group of enthusiastic, drum-playing bad boys joined together by our desire to explore every inch of the wild world of drum play.

 

The foundation for Copenhagen Drummers was already laid when we served for the Danish Queen in the Royal Life Guards Drum Corps. - A world full of traditions and history. The drum play in the Corps is shaped by strict rules for the execution and choreography. We therefore find it liberating and exiting to experiment with our own ideas about what we think drum play also could be. It was these kinds of thoughts that started Copenhagen Drummers, - a refuge where ideas and thoughts could float freely, making the drum play wilder and more fun.

 

The group of Copenhagen Drummers first saw the light in 2010 when we were announced the proud winners of ‘Denmark’s got Talent 2010’. Here we got the opportunity to introduce Denmark to our breakthrough drum play. We played with water and fire, on latters and on garbage bins. All our crazy ideas came alive on national TV and a whole new chapter of our lives began!

 

In the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, we stood side by side with the winner Emmelie De Forest and took the world by storm. We are so proud to have helped to put Denmark on the world map with the spectacular performance!

 

We have performed over 1000 shows in Denmark and abroad; France, Germany, Spain, India, Sweden, Norway, Belarus, Turkey, Northern Ireland, Thailand, Russia, Albany, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, The Netherlands and more.

 

Precision, uniformity and discipline are key ingredients in our shows and our shows are always even parts of passion and curiosity. That’s why we give the audience an experience which combines traditional drum play with very unusual tools. And the shows are spiced up with energy and enthusiasm that are out of the ordinary! A completely unique experience with constellations of sound, light and visual effects the audience won’t forget!

HISTORY

DANISH EUROVISION 2013

 

In early 2012, Morten and Jacob was put together with the team and creators behind ”Only Teardrops” with Emmelie De Forest in front. Copenhagen Drummers developed the choreography for the Drum show.

 

The song, the drums, the choreography and the almost radiant show combined, made up the factors for the winning song.

 

Due to limitations to number of persons on stage, only Morten and Jacob were representing Copenhagen Drummers at the show.

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, 2013

 

We traveled to Malmø and the pressure was on, as ”Only Teardrops” was a giant bookmakers favorite. With a few, but key changes to the choreography, Copenhagen Drummers were ready.

 

The pressure on Morten and Jacob was immense, but they describe it as an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience to stand in front of an audience of 170 million people, as the show was a live TV broad cast.

 

We won the Eurovision Song Contest even before all votes were counted and the success was a reality. The reactions to the show have been overwhelmingly positive and we are still so grateful to have taken part in this amazing experience.

The talent show of the greatest talents – we were invited to France to participate in a TV show contest. Here, we were to compete against other winners from different talent shows around the world. We finished as the first runner up among 60 other participants.

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2014, THE BIG FINALY

 

After the success of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 we were excited to stand on the large international scene once again – now together with the rest of the members of Copenhagen Drummers. - And of course with Emmelie De Forest.

 

We had been given free hands to create the drum choreography and we excelled by playing on drums in water up to our stomachs. The experience cannot be described. It was just fantastic to stand on Danish ground and represent Denmark in the largest musical contest in the world.

JEG ER DIN

 

Our first single was released as an experiment with Body Percussion, as we wished to create a new kind of “sound image” for Copenhagen Drummers. The single was created in cooperation with Søren Mikkelsen from Medley Studio.

 

The vocal was recorded by Kasper Nyemann and Jon Nørgaard. The single; ”Jeg er din” topped the charts as #3 on iTunes.

ELEMENTS TOUR

 

Vi var stolte over at kunne præsentere vores første Danmarkstourné!

ELEMENTS TOUR var en livekoncert af 75 minutters varighed, hvor vi tog publikum ind i vores fantasifulde univers. Et univers der er skabt ud fra vores kreativitet og passion for musik og koreografi. Med energi, vildskab og humor, samt elementer som ild, vand, jord og luft, var der noget alle kunne relatere til. Sammenspillet mellem lys og lyd skabte en unik stemning, der gav publikum følelsen af, at være en del af universet og historien, som blev fortalt.

 

ELEMENTS TOUR 2016 bød på 12 koncerter på danske spillesteder.
