Snap Drag Drum Duo



Percussion innovation has never sounded or looked like this. Jane Boxall and Jessie Nelson bring new energy to 21st-century percussion performance. From Frank Zappa’s ‘Black Page’ to Bjork’s ‘Mutual Core,’ their repertoire spans an eclectic and wide range of creative innovation. Building audio-visual multimedia, text and choreography into their work, Snap Drag focuses primarily on the creative interdisciplinary potential of two drumkits. Jessie and Jane are equally at home performing in art galleries, recital halls, percussion festivals, schools and universities.


Jane Boxall is a marimba soloist and a punk rocker. Following completion of her doctorate in Percussion Performance and Literature at UIUC, Jane moved to Burlington, Vermont. She tours internationally as a soloist, and can be heard regionally with Doll Fight!, the VSO, Ricochet Duo and the Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble. 


Jessie Nelson holds an MFA in Performance and Interactive Media from Brooklyn College and has been performing professionally since 2006. Her work can be heard in the jazz clubs and musical theater venues in New York City, and in multi-media percussion works in various venues.


Snap Drag Drum Duo is available for performances and percussion clinics.
