About the Drums of Navarone

Drums of Navarone is an internationally-renowned squad of musical misfits and rogues led by Col. Drake Hardcastle. Their mission: Fight oppression, injustice and intolerance through the power of music. The Drums of Navarone unites people with Afro-Latin rhythms and the subversive sounds of funk, jazz, and soul, striking fear into the heart of tyrants and warmongers. This 8-piece combo is exactly what you need to topple your local dictator. Be sure to book them for your next demonstration, mass-uprising, or bar mitzvah.

"Five stars... Inventive... Eclectic... Completely original... Everyone was dancing!" 

Full review: I saw Drums of Navarone at the Peoria Hippodrome. I give them five stars for sheer chutzpah, if nothing else. This band is not inventive in any way. They just mash up eclectic styles of music and claim to be completely original! I can't fathom why everyone was dancing to those primitive beats!"

The concert was most disrespectful toward our Beloved Leader. The Virtuous Sister of the Great Leader is not to be called a "sexy mama". And the hip-hop version of the our Great Nation's national anthem was in horrible taste. I can not recommend the Drums of Navarone for your country's next military parade.

The music was absolutely fantastic! We danced all night to those deep-body grooves. The trombone player created a quiet a stir when he ran off with the bride. But aside from that it was a great wedding party!

If you want to dance the night away to some deep-body grooves, the Drums of Navarone is your band! Just be sure to keep them away from the bar and the buffet.
