With its riveting rhythms, bold beats, and ear grabbing energy, DRUMLine Live is a high octane musical roller coaster ride that is guaranteed to touch every emotion in your body. We’re back with a BRAND NEW show for the entire family and we promise… you will be on your feet by Halftime!
Represented by Christine Barkley, CEO of Creative Booking Agency in New York City, “DRUMLine Live” will allow children and adults to experience the intense musical rollercoaster of a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) halftime show.
“I guarantee people have never seen a show like this before,” said Don P. Roberts, CEO of “DRUMLine Live” and Executive Band Consultant of “Drumline” and “Drumline: A New Beat.” “The cast of musicians and singers, led by an all-star group of percussionists, will perform extraordinary choreography that will have the audience on their feet, and dancing in the aisles, throughout the entire show!”
“DRUMLine Live” has toured all over the world and has already gained substantial worldwide attention. U.S. President, Barack Obama’s daughter, Malia, and her secret service attended the 2012 sold out performance in Bethesda, Maryland. Furthermore, the sensational show has achieved an incredible overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars on Ticketmaster.com.
The Star-Ledger, Newark, NJ reported, “DRUMLine Live has made its way across the country, showing the thrill, the musical genius and the true flavor of the ever-exciting HBCU halftime show.” “The energy level – including among pretty much the entire crowd, and starting relatively soon after the show began – never dissipated…” said Adam Taxin of the Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Cultural Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
