A show that uses everyday objects to create music is taking over the Mahalia Jackson theater this weekend. Vanessa Bolano has a preview of all the action you can catch on Stomp.

With intense beats and off the wall instruments Stomp stomps into the Mahalia Jackson theater this weekend!

The team consists of eight performers and their 90 minute show shows you how to make music with just about anything.

Performer Cammie Griffin has been stomping for six years and says they call it, “The exploration of sound.”

“We start off with brooms, then we go to matchboxes, then we'll use a dust pan and brush,” says Mike Hall who has completed his first year with the team, “It's kind of like going into a closet and whatever you find, like a utility closet not a walk in like clothing closet.”

Andre Fernandez who has been performing for 15 years says, “There's no talking in the show so it's universal. There's no language barrier. Everyone can relate to the music and what we're making, and basically we're finding music in everything.”

Stomp started 21 years ago in England as a street performance and now it's been performed in over 350 cities and 36 . For tickets and show times click here.
