Festivals and Theatres


“The audience reaction to  Mystic Drum’s “Marshmallow Island” was everything we’d hoped.  Both Lorne (English) and Josh (French) gave fast paced, fun filled and educational performances throughout the week of the Festival. The children freely and enthusiastically interacted with the performers resulting in many happy faces and great discussion of what had happened during the show as they exited the theatre.”

“Mystic Drumz was a fantastic addition to our Co-Op Family Stage during Westerner Days 2014. Not only was he engaging during his performance, but he spent time walking around the grounds before his show to create buzz and excitement in order to round up kids and families to come to the show. Mystic Drumz is a fun and educational experience for people of all ages!”

“The Rose Theatre held two school performances of “The Legend of Marshmallow Island” and received rave reviews from both students and teachers. The teachers loved the energy of the show and how it taught while keeping their students entertained and completely focused. We loved how the performance tied into many curriculum requirements including world music, geography and history. The Rose Theatre would highly recommend booking “The Legend of Marshmallow Island” and we look forward to working with Mystic Drumz again in the future.”

“Mystic Drumz’s Marshmallow Island was the perfect musical journey for over 1800 excited Central Ohio children. Lorne Lampert has talent with the traditional call and response music genre and a gift for connecting with his audience.”

“Thank you so much for coming and being a part of the Sound of Music Festival. I loved your workshops, your energy and your interaction with the kids! It was amazing to see how, in a short half hour the children learned a complete drumming routine and song. I also loved watching the looks on people’s faces as they arrived in the park and heard the music the children were making. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again.”

“The Button People have finally arrived at Mystic Drumz – what a fantastic show! We were so pleased to have it launch here at Cosmo Music and it fit right into our philosophy that Music Makes You Smarter! Lorne Lampert is a phenomenal music teacher/performer. Every child was riveted to his story and all the instruments he had on stage. They couldn’t wait for the next step in the adventure to come. The interactivity of the show and the relation of the musical terms to the audience were well matched. The show is truly a family oriented outing – The Mystic Drumz performance is entertaining for both kids and parents – he kept us laughing the entire time! We hope to see more of his musical stories come to life and bring them to every child possible.”
