Boom Duo

“We play drums, trumpet(s), and stuff laying around, improvisational music, exploration of timespace”

Boom Duo is John Lacques (drums, percussion, small instruments) and Noah Thomas (trumpets, conch, theremin, electronics). Boom Duo perform compositions created in the moment, taking listeners on a trip through a varied sonic landscape. Drawing from their personal experience of a rich world musical heritage, Boom Duo builds conversations/reflections on Bourbon Street , the streets of Jaipur, or the freedom found in the experimentalism of Chicago, they revel in the energy of 1940s 52nd street NYC while dreaming of impromptu jam sessions in Havana or Port au Prince.

Their first album ‘Live at Leashless’ (released November 2019), captures their wide range of sonic explorations. Recorded live, mixed and co-produced by Grammy-award winning engineer John Baffa (TV Tray Studio) and mastered at Capitol Records by Evren Goknar, it alternates from second-line street beats through post-bop phrasing, to dark theremin heavy surf noise, dub drenched melodica and percolating samba rhythms.
