Bangers and Crash Percussion Group

The Bangers and Crash Percussion Group is a collective of Irish percussionists who regularly collaborate for a wide range of projects. Their flexibility means that they can perform everything from huge, spectacular shows that fill the stage with instruments to small, intimate concerts, school workshops, street performances and much, much more. Performers have included Caitriona Frost, Alex Petcu, Maeve O’Hara, Chris Stynes, Kevin Power and Clare O’Keeffe.


Recent projects include “Wood/Metal/Water”, a concert as part of the Sounds from a Safe Harbour festival in Cork, a performance on the main stage of the National Concert Hall as part of Alex Petcu’s National Concert Hall Rising Star recital, performances at Quarter Block Party festival in Cork, a series of concerts for CIT and school workshops for West Cork Music’s outreach programme


“Assured technique, mature musicianship, a varied programme and a communicative stage presence ensured that Alex Petcu-Colan charmed his audience.” Irish Examiner
