WORLD RENOWNED DRUMLINE LIVE
 RETURNS TO THE KIMMEL CENTER CULTURAL CAMPUS
FOR TWO HIGH-OCTANE MUSICAL PERFORMANCES
JANUARY 19-20, 2019

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, November 15, 2018) – The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts welcomes the return of DRUMLine Live to the Merriam Theater on Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20, 2019. The show-stopping production created by the musical team behind the hit movies Drumline and Drumline: A New Beat embodies the soulful, high-stepping style of the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) marching band experience. The brand new show features dynamic and riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear-grabbing energy. DRUMLine Live is part of the Kimmel Center’s Family Discovery Series.

 

“The world-renowned DRUMLine Live is a thrilling performance that is perfect for the whole family,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “The energetic show features an immensely talented cast of performers as they combine elaborate percussion routines with intricate choreography and exciting effects in this comprehensive theatrical masterpiece.”

 

DRUMLine Live has paraded onto some of the biggest theater stages in America, Japan, and Korea, performing more than 300 shows since 2009. The synchronized musical showcase comes alive on stage with a world-class cast of percussionists, musicians, and dancers. The 40-member cast of performers honed its unrivaled talent with years of training in marching band programs across the United States, including Florida A&M University, Tennessee State University, and Southern University, just to name a few. 

 

Incorporating original compositions and soul-stirring interpretations of top 40 hits, DRUMLine Live’s musical journey infuses colorful, choreographed routines with vibrant costumes, and heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. With musical highlights from hip-hop, American soul, gospel, jazz, and other music genres, DRUMLine Live brings a unique style of drumming, mesmerizing musicianship, and lively choreography never seen on stage before.
