DRUMLine Live
JAN. 15, 2022
AT 3 P.M. (Matinee)


Riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy

DRUMLine Live is an international tour based on the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) marching band tradition. With riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy, this stage show is a synchronized musical showcase of the HBCU experience.  DRUMLine Live Incorporates original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits. Group performances range from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. “Taking us on a journey through the timeline of music directly responsible for our modern drumlines, the cast begins with a scene of brightly garbed drummers, entertaining us with African drums and tribal dances, giving us the message right from the start that this wasn’t a concert where anyone could be anything but titillated to the extremes of their sensibilities.”- The Nashville Examiner

DRUMLine Live was the marching band behind Beyonce’ at Coachella and were also featured in her 2019 Netflix Movie, “Homecoming.”  Beyonce' and her team enlisted the services of DRUMLine Live to capture the true style, soul, and authenticity of the HBCU marching band, for one of the most electrifying performances of her career.  Be prepared for a musical salute to the Queen Bee that can only be experienced by witnessing, "The Greatest Show On Stage.......DRUMLine Live."
