Come Feel the Rhythm at the 6th annual Percussion Palooza!Join us in the Rock Falls High school for a day full of Rockin' beats!

Featuring Solo and ensemble festival, steel drum performances and percussion ensembles! This event is held in honor of Rock Falls native Louie Bellson (1924-2009). Bellson was a famous percussionist who performed with some of the greatest jazz musicians that ever lived. In addition to being a talented drummer, Bellson wrote more than 1,000 compositions and arrangements in a variety of musical styles. AT the event you will be able to see Bellson's very own drum set and purchase books he has written about drums and percussion.

Throughout the events of Percussion Palooza, we wish to emulate the musical spirit of Louie Bellson and inspire those attending to love and enjoy music like he did.
