This November will see the first DrumLine Battle event in New Mexico with the Duke City Drum Off DrumLine Battle.

DrumLine Battle is a program of Drum Corps International that showcases percussion ensembles of any instrumentation and skill level year-round, spotlighting their unique talents and creativity in a high energy face-to-face competition. Pitting two Lines against each other in face-to-face competition, each battle consists of two rounds, each round containing around two minutes of drumming. This drumming can be anything the line wants to play- cadences, show chunks, exercises- anything, provided it’s entertaining. DrumLine Battle is all about swagger and showmanship, and the audience, just as much as the judges, determines the victor, meaning that visuals, maneuvers, and one-upping the other line is just as important as technique and skill in a winning performance.

We want to see as many people involved as possible with this event, and we’re excited to be able to provide a venue for the enhancement of the marching arts. There will be a number of information tables at this event, including one for Arsenal, should you be curious about our 2017 season. We’re also really happy to be supporting local groups and all concession sales will go to support the Sandia Matador Marching Band.
