DRUMLine Live's Atlanta Performance (Jan 12) Postponed Due to Inclement Weather

Marching band theatrical rescheduled for January 24 at 8 p.m.
DRUMLine Live, the show-stopping attraction created by the music team behind 20th Century Fox's hit movie Drumline, will parade onto the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre stage on January 24th at 8 p.m. The show’s original January 12th performance has been cancelled due to inclement weather and icy road conditions throughout metropolitan Atlanta
------------------------------------ MORE INFO -------------------------------------

Complete with dazzling choreography and explosive percussion, DRUMLine Live is a thrilling spectacle
that pays homage to the show-style marching popularized at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). With riveting rhythms, bold beats and ear-grabbing energy, the staged show is a synchronized musical showcase of the HBCU experience.

“We’ve taken the excitement of an HBCU football game halftime show, increased the intensity by a thousand watts, and created a musical journey that will touch every emotion,” says Don P. Roberts, DRUMLine Live’s creator and director. “DRUMLine Live is a high-octane musical roller coaster ride that will keep the entire family cheering for more.”

The legendary HBCU band experience comes alive with DRUMLine Live’s world-class cast of percussionists, musicians and dancers. The 39-member cast of performers, many originally from the metropolitan Atlanta area, honed its unrivaled talent with years of training in marching band programs across the United States such as Clark Atlanta, University of Georgia, Tennessee State, and Florida A&M University, just to name a few.

Incorporating original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits, DRUMLine’s musical journey infuses colorful, choreographed routines with vibrant costumes and heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences. Audiences across the globe have been brought to their feet by the stirring sound of trumpets and incredible feats of athleticism; and have been astonished by the precision, creativity, and pulsing force in the climatic percussion battle. 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.

Roberts was inspired to create DRUMLine Live after serving as executive band consultant for the 2002 movie Drumline starring Nick Cannon. Filmed in Atlanta, Drumline was one of the first major motion pictures to capture the electricity of the black college marching band experience. Atlanta serves as the headquarters for DRUMLine Live, which kicked off its second U.S. tour in October 2010. The show had a successful 70-performance international tour in 2008-2009 with sold-out shows throughout Asia.

"For those who live in the Atlanta area who attended HBCUs, and for those who have never had a chance to catch black college football games, the energy and the talent in DRUMLine Live are simply going to blow you away."

DRUMLine Live is co-produced by Halftime Live, LLC, and Columbia Artists Management, Inc (CAMI). CAMI is an internationally producer of live entertainment including many award winning Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. DRUMLine Live’s Atlanta show will be followed by 30 performance dates across the country including West Palm Beach (1/17), Detroit (2/11), Pittsburgh (2/15), Baltimore (2/19), and Charlotte (2/24).
