Marching band tour showcases tradition with energy

Feb. 21, 2013 @ 07:25 AM

ASHLAND -- Even without a field to march on, the performers of "Drumline Live" still easily managed to put on a big-time show Wednesday evening at the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland.

The "Drumline" tour is based on the historically black college and university marching band tradition, and the show was put together by the choreographers of the 2002 film, which is the tour's namesake.

The performance includes dancers and musicians who incorporate an eclectic mix of sounds that range from contemporary hip hop, R&B, classic Motown tunes and the rousing sounds of the marching band tradition.

The next event at the Paramount Arts Center will be The Ritch Collins 3-0 at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21.
