A show-stopping new attraction created by the music team behind 20th Century Fox's hit movie, DRUMLine Live brings show-style marching bands to the theatrical stage.
DRUMLine Live is an international tour based on the Historically Black College and University marching band tradition. With riveting rhythms, bold beats and ear-grabbing energy, the staged show is a synchronized musical showcase of the HBCU experience. Featuring a talented cast of larger than life performers from Americas top historically Black Colleges and Universities, this production presents the rousing and rhythmic sounds of the great brass past including Earth, Wind, and Fire and Tower of Power, side by side with the hottest contemporary hip hop and R&B.
The stirring sound of trumpets, explosive choreography, and incredible feats of athleticism from the "steppers"... more and dancers, will bring the audience to its feet. But the heart of the show is unquestionably the talented group of African American percussionists who form the "drumline." The showdown of rhythm and speed between the "lines" will shock you with its precision and pulsing force.
Alive with intensity, take a glimpse into an American experience that many have never seen before!
