Your team creates an incredible rhythm orchestra using nothing but scrap items as instruments. It may all look like rubbish and random objects but, by the end of this amazing activity, you won’t believe how great it all sounds. As with everything we do, this is fast paced and fantastic fun to be involved with. The results never fail to surprise. A mop and bucket will never quite look the same again! Please contact us.
Something different to conventional drumming
As participants walk into the room they will find piles of familiar, but unrelated, junk items on the floor. Little do they know at this stage that they are going to become a fantastic junk percussion orchestra!
We have been providing this modern and unusual percussion option for over ten years. High-profile West End shows like Stomp and The Blue Man Group, as well as TV advertisements showing similar activities, have raised awareness of this type of event, and our Junk Funk is now regularly requested.
This entire event keeps everyone involved and, in our usual inimitable style, we make this activity the perfect mix of entertainment and constructive team building endeavour.
Working together towards a Junk Funk finale
Using familiar household items and some useless rubbish, your team will rehearse and perform together a routine with the help of our Junk Funk professional performers.
It is the job of your Funk Funk facilitator and his team to get your group playing together with items such as industrial bins, watering cans, pots and pans and step ladders in a rhythmic ensemble!
It takes just seconds to start the briefing and then it’s straight into the practical challenge of music making.
Just like a real orchestra, we create different sections, with different roles. The large bins create the low bass sounds. The pots and pans create high notes. Added to this is everything in between for a full spectrum of tones.
Your team transformation starts to begin when, before your very eyes, your novice musicians start to believe in what they are doing. The rubbish certainly doesn’t sound like rubbish anymore!
With this new confidence, it’s time to take things to the next level. In true West End style, this can’t be just a static performance, so our performance group adds choreography to create more of a spectacle. Costumes come next, with hard hats, vizzy vests and overalls adding the finishing touches.
After a few moments for your team’s natural extroverts to shine, your group will perform one last time with all the creative elements in place. We suggest that you have a camera handy to record the inspiring finale.
Fast activity set up
Junk Funk is one of our fastest activities to set up. If we can’t set up the room beforehand, we can burst into your room or conference hall, empty our huge industrial bin containing all the instruments and, hey presto, we have everything on the floor ready for your group to commence the session. It’s that simple!
A great alternative to drumming
If you have already taken part in a DrumPulse drumming event, Junk Funk provides a wonderful next step as it takes the same compelling rhythms and adds drama and theatre on top.
We also offer various theming options with Junk Funk, to make your particular activity special and unique. In order to enhance the initial surprise, we can completely theme your room before the participants come back from coffee or lunch.
So, your team will return to an authentic junk yard, littered with cardboard boxes, a raft of junk items and with the room wrapped in hazard tape! Theming of a room takes only minutes and really does enhance the initial surprise.
Junk Funk is an environmentally-friendly team activity
As we are using and constantly reusing the junk items in our Junk Funk events, there is no waste, and we’re very happy to use items provided at the venue to avoid transportation costs.
There’s absolutely no reason why we cannot use junk items, or indeed products, from your own industry or company. For example, we recently provided a Junk Funk activity for the Body Shop using only its own products.
