You clicked on this story for one reason or another.  Perhaps you are a huge Queen fan and will click on anything that talks about the band.  Perhaps you are a fan of the Boomwhackers and wanted to see this performance.  Or Perhaps you read the title and said "what the heck is a Bookwhacker?".

Craig Ramsell (who grew up in Iowa) is the inventor of the Boomwhacker.  Boomwhackers are lightweight, hollow, color-coded, plastic tubes, tuned to a musical pitch by length. The original plastic boomwhackers were first produced in 1995 and are now most commonly used in elementary schools as an inexpensive musical instrument.

Now that the educational piece is done.  Let's watch what 16 people can do with them!
