Knight Concert Hall with original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits.

Tickets to Drumline Live, inspired by the blockbuster film Drumline starring Nick Cannon, are $25 and $55 and may be purchased through the Arsht Center box office by calling 305 949-6722, or online at arshtcenter.org

Drumline Live is composed of 40 band members including one drum major, 33 percussion and wind players, five dancers, and one host, all from America’s historically black colleges and universities.

Drumline Live brings the drum-pounding, percussion-blasting, high-stepping tradition of the marching band onto the stage for an intensely energetic performance likely to have audiences stomping their feet and clapping their hands. Sizzling choreography and daredevil athletic feats take the syncopated magic of marching band tradition straight to the stage.

Performances range from vividly choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. The live stage show encompasses a rainbow of sound – from funk to R&B to oldies — and amazes with sheer sonic adventure.

With an imaginative combination of sounds from Michael Jackson to Motown and onstage dance battles, the band delights and amazes with classics as well as their own original compositions.

“Miami is in for quite a party, as Drumline Live returns to the Arsht Center with new compositions and high-energy sounds that will surely keep audiences dancing,” said M. John Richard, Arsht Center president and CEO.

“South Florida will also get a chance to cheer for homegrown talent, including former FAMU students, who make up more than half of the incredible cast.”
