John Bergamo is the driving force behind The Repercussion Unit, a collective of percussionists. The line-up of the Repercussion Unit varies. From time to time, Ed Mann also takes part it.
In 2003, The Repercussion Unit was invited to the Jazz Festival Frankfurt, Germany, to play a Frank Zappa inspired set. The set was called "Tribal Ritual Focusing On The Rhythms Of FZ".
