Automatic Live Lighting Show Using Sound/Microphones

I am a vocalist and recording engineer. While I was recording drums for my band, I came across an idea. I saw that the LED's on my audio interface light up when the microphones are picking up too much noise. Since I was recording drums, they were lighting up to the beat of the song.

So I thought, what if it's possible to connect cheap microphones to our drum set at live shows and we would have an automatic light show where the lights would turn on when the microphone picks up noise from a certain drum?!

However, I'm not sure how to wire this type of thing. So here I am, anyone have any idea how this can be done?
