A group of talented musicians, boys AND girls, who play percussion instruments on the field. Despite what the rest of the marching band might think, the drumline CAN read music and normally will throw down beats on demand. The drumline is the backbone and the heartbeat of a marching band and without it all the other cocky musicians wouldn't be able to keep time. The rest of the band is intimidated by the drumline because the drumline knows how to play ten times the amount of instruments they do, and spends more time practicing than they could even imagine.
Wow did you hear how well the drumline did?

Yeah! Why do the rest of us even bother?

Last night, hit a good lick. I brought home three figures easy for about two hours worth of my time. Not too bad I don't think.

The section of the band that is always misunderstood. They DO know how to read music (yeah drummers in the band also play mallet instruments in concerts, what a concept) and have the most challenging music, but band is NOT their life. They have to master playing 50+ different insturments, which is why most people find it so fun. Band directors usually blame the drumline for their problems.

The best (and loudest) part of the marching band. Drumline practice is sometimes productive but mostly its just sitting around and making perverted jokes. Most of the marching band wishes they were us and/or think we are HAWT ;)
Marching band boy: dang look at that drumline! They are so awesome
MB girl: yeah and look at that guy playin quints, what a hottie
Boy: yea so is that snare chick. Girls who play drums are super hot.

The most kickass, badass most groovin part of ANY marching band. Consists of boys AND girls. most guys on the drumline are hott. most girls on the drumline are the coolest most badass girls you'll ever meet. Woodwinds hate us because we are loud and have fun. Brass hate us because they want to BE like us. Conductors hate us because we have way more fun than they did in highschool. The Cadences are usually badass and really groovin. Most drummers HATE the movie drumline because it is nothing like being on the drumline. Drumline takes hard work and syncopated ears and hands. Drumline-ers pull pranks. Very good pranks. And it is a well known fact that most drummers are great kissers
What a cool drumline

DAAAAAYUUM, that snare drummer is hott.

I wish I could be on the drumline...

The drumline was saying some weird chants earlier. Something about a snare-god. Their such a cult.
