January 2017 - Turn it Up: Drumline Live
College marching bands dominate football halftime performances, especially those at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). DRUMLine Live! recreates spectacular halftime performances live onstage for audiences unable to attend a HBCU football game. Don’t miss DRUMLine Live! when it marches into Popejoy Hall on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 3pm.
Created and directed by Don Roberts, DRUMLine Live! blends riveting rhythms, complex beats, and high energy to create a remarkable show. The group performs original compositions as well as renditions of today’s top hits accompanied by amazing choreography. Dozens of blaring horns and snare drums recreate the sights and sounds of HBCU marching band showdowns. Audiences enjoy uniquely arranged classic marching band tunes and the latest R&B and hip hop music interpreted in the HBCU marching band style.
HBCU marching bands were originally created to showcase HBCU traditions. Bands were also used to recruit students and raise money for various college programs. Today, HBCU marching bands include some of the most talented performers in the country. Drum majors lead dancers and musicians in performances of various drumming styles remastered for the marching band.
