It's been said that the style of the Hip Pickles, is an exciting blend of:   
                              high-energy drumming
                                        hip choreography
            and 'interactive” audience participation. 

 “It is this unique blend, that has earned the

 Their "Team Drumming" melds the styles of Show Drumming, Corps Percussion, World Percussion, Latin, and Drum Set to create the unmistakable "Hip Pickles Voice."   Andy Hamilton
