Jacksonville, FL: DRUMLINE LIVE plays Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center’s Moran Theater for one performance only on Saturday, November 17th at 8PM! Tickets begin at $32.00 and are on sale online now or (904) 442-BWAY (2929).
DRUMLINE LIVE’s energetic cast has honed its precision and energy with years of training in marching band programs across the southern United States. This versatile group of musicians and dancers brings an explosive energy and athleticism to an eclectic mix of sounds. Equally at home with the hottest contemporary hip hop, R&emp;B, classic Motown tunes, and the rousing sounds of the great brass tradition, DRUMLINE LIVE is thrilled to share the American Marching Band experience with a wider audience.
With riveting rhythms, bold beats and ear-grabbing energy, the staged show will be a synchronized musical showcase. Incorporating original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits, group performances will range from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences.
“We’ve taken the excitement of an HBCU football game halftime show, increased the intensity by a thousand watts, and created a musical journey that will touch every emotion,” says Don P. Roberts, Creator and Director of DRUMLINE LIVE. As the Executive Band Consultant for the Twentieth Century Fox hit movie, Drumline, Roberts was responsible for training the actors, writing the precision drills, and rehearsing the band. As the chief band consultant, he played a vital role in the making of Drumline and its success. The movie received national and international acclaim.
DRUMLINE LIVE kicks off its fourth US tour in the 2012-2013 season following its extremely successful tours in 2008-2009, 2010-2011, and 2011-2012.
