Without drumlines, marching bands would be rhythm-less messes—performing free jazz and marching into whichever stadium, shopping mall, or ice-cream parlor they pleased. Enjoy the rigidity of rhythm with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one second- or third-tier ticket (a $50 value) to Drumline Live at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County on Sunday, January 16, at 7 p.m.
Drumline Live transports the African-American marching-band tradition to the vaunted theatrical stage of the Arsht Center. An armada of musicians culled from historically black colleges gathers in a vibrant stage show, with vivid, drum-filled musical selections illustrating the drumline's artistic lineage in African culture through classic Earth, Wind & Fire cuts and chart-busting top 40 hip-hop hits. While dazzlingly complex drum cadences fill the audience's ears, choreographed dance routines keep their eyes from the temptation to turn into a second set of ears. This Groupon nets a single seat for the January 16 performance on the second of four tiers at the architecturally striking Arsht Center, which also features elegant dining options (not included with this Groupon).
Both Urban Life & Style and the Star-Ledger featured Drumline Live, and Yelpers give the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County a four-star average score. More than 1,500 Facebookers are fans.
