Without drumlines, marching bands would be rhythmless 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 $20, you get one ticket to Drumline Live! at the Stranahan Theater (up to a $62 value) on Wednesday, February 9, at 7:30 p.m. Seating reservations are first come, first served—please pick-up tickets ahead of time at the Stranahan Theater for best available seating.
Drumline Live! transports the African-American marching-band tradition to the whimsical theatrical stage of the Stranahan Theater. 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.
- Through every band member, drummer, dancer, and singer we saw an awesome glimpse into the beloved tradition of the marching band. Through the whole show I sang along, bobbed my head, clapped my hands, stomped my feet and danced in and out of my seat. This show was unforgettable! – Adesewa Falati, Urban Life & Style
