Beyond the Beat

  • Beyond the Beat by Exit 9
  • Beyond the Beat by Exit 9


This incredible percussion ensemble offers a high-energy, tightly choreographed performance infused with fine musicianship, humor, variety, instruction, and audience participation. One surprise follows another as the musical genres flow from classical to ragtime to improvisation and more—and rusty brake shoes, garbage cans, and wooden stools supplant traditional instrumentation. Topping it all off is the group’s astonishing teamwork, a steady source of visual delight.
