South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and Culture Shock Miami co-present DRUMLine Live on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 8:00 PM on the Main Stage of the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center at 10950 SWQ 221 St., Miami FL 33189

DRUMLine Live is the newest live production created by the musical team led by Don P. Roberts, who was the Executive Band Consultant for the hit movie, Drumline. Among the hits featured are The King (A Tribute to Michael Jackson), It’s Halftime (Salute to Prince Rogers Nelson) and Come Join the Parade.

DRUMLine Live is an international tour based on the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) marching band tradition. With riveting rhythms, bold beats and ear-grabbing energy, the stage show is a synchronized musical showcase of the HBCU experience. Incorporating original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits, group performances range from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences.

In addition to the regular performance of DRUMLine Live, the audience will be treated to a pre-show performance by the winner of the DRUMLINE Drum Off, sponsored by South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and Culture Shock Miami. The winning drumline is Miami Carol City Senior High School- Black Out Express. They will perform on the Plaza of South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and will lead the audience into the concert hall for the DRUMLine Live performance.

Here are some highlights of what critics had to say about DRUMLine Live:

Drumline Live marched…with explosive energy that quickly rubbed off on the rowdy audience, with hooting, hollering, clapping and even a little dancing
Lehigh Valley Music; Lehigh Valley, PA (December 5, 2011)

Perhaps most consistently remarkable during the overall performance was the skill with which incredibly talented musicians simultaneously danced (always with a sense of fun and spontaneity, and often with a sense of humor…The energy level – including pretty much the entire crowd…never dissipated…See it.
Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner; Philadelphia, PA (October 26, 2011)

DRUMLINE LIVE has made its way across the country, showing the thrill, the musical genius and the true flavor of the ever-exciting HBCU half-time show. 
The Star-Ledger; Newark, NJ (February 11, 2011)

Taking us on a journey through the timeline of music directly responsible for our modern drumlines, the cast begins with a scene of brightly garbed drummers, entertaining us with African drums and tribal dances, giving us the message right from the start that this wasn’t a concert where anyone could be anything but titillated to the extremes of their sensibilities.
Nashville Examiner; Nashville, TN (November 10, 2011)

The spectacle did not disappoint as the cast dazzled the audience with fancy footwork, comedic scuffles and a blast of marching band tradition…By the end of the hair-raising gospel routine, members of the band were playing in the aisles and the entire audience was brought to their feet…Audience members who thought the stage would be the last place to see the cast were surprised when every cast member…flooded the aisles to dance out to the lobby.
Tennessee Journalist; Knoxville, TN (March 6, 2011)

DRUMLINE LIVE stirs the adrenaline and thrills the soul.
The Examiner; Washington, DC (February 26, 2011
