Synopsis
A performance by "Blast!," a 68-member group known for elaborately choreograhed musical performances. "Blast!" is based on a drum and bugle corps technique and consists of brass, percussion and visual ensemble sections. While the brass and percussion sections are composed of standard musical instruments, the visual ensemble uses props such as flags and sabres, with drill techniques to create a fully arranged performance.
