The George C. Wolfe/Savion Glover tap extravaganza Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk is getting a little bit noisier with a brand new offshoot of the highly popular show. Keep Bangin' , featuring the highly charged percussionists from Noise/Funk pounding on buckets, frying pans and everything in between, opening Nov. 22 at NY's Baggot Inn.

Bangin' also features an audience participation segment, where audience members are invited onstage to take their turn "hittin'".
Noise/Funk recently celebrated its two-year anniversary on Broadway, April 25. The musical opened at the Ambassador Theatre on that date in 1996 and went on to win four Tony Awards, including trophies for best direction of a musical (Wolfe) and best choreography (Glover).
