Here at the University of Hawai‘i we have a style that is all our own. Over the past 6 years we have distilled our sound to its current form, a highly groove-oriented drumline hell-bent on making the listener “nod their head.”
The drumline is here to cheer on our athletic teams with love, support and hot beats. We are the tip of the spear in terms of fan participation at sporting events, a conduit of fan energy to the players on the field. With our high-energy beats, we aim to galvanize the fans, cheerleaders, dancers and band into one voice cheering on Hawaii’s team.
WANT TO BE IN THE GAME?
As a member of the drumline, you are a part of the gameday experience!!! From pep rallies to the Tailgate Jams, Pregame, playing in the stands, cheering, halftime and the postgame jam, the drumline is an integral part of the gameday experience from beginning to end. People who come to the games are just spectators, the drumline is in the game.
These clinics will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with the audition music, find out more about the audition process, learn the UH Drumline approach and build chops. It is also a good chance to get to meet new people and make new friends. Bring sticks, a practice pad, your music, a pencil and earplugs. While the clinics are not mandatory, coming to a clinic will only help you in the audition process. A write-up of each clinic will be posted to the UHDL Audition Info Facebook group.
