Tropixplosion has educational shows too!

Perfect for schools k-12, colleges, libraries, and more!

We offer a few different shows.

The School Assembly Show

This is an interactive show for kids up to high school. It consists of 5 musicians playing steel drum, percussion (congas, bongos, timbales and more), trumpet (as well as flugel horn and conch), drum set, and bass. We discuss the origins of the steel drum, trumpet, congas, and more as well as show how recycling and repurposing are tied to some of the instruments on stage, one of which is a “Blue Man/Stomp” style instrument. Take the basic musical terms, history, and geography and mix it together with a sizzling, interactive performance and you have Tropixplosion! Songs that will be performed range from “Hot Hot Hot” to “Under the Sea” to a Blue Man/Stomp piece and more!
