You’ve probably seen them at our home games at AAMI Park, and if you were at the Winter Ball you would have seen them there too. Now it’s time to meet the guys behind our match day pre-game entertainment, The D²Drumline.
The D²Drumline is Australia's only professional USA-Style Marching Percussion Ensemble, specializing in high impact, visually impressive precision entertainment for large scale events.
Since its inception in 2010, the group has performed at the 2011/12 New Years Eve Celebrations at Federation Square, the St Kilda Festival, on Channel 10 news, Channel 7 Sunrise, the Victorian Premier's Office and a number of high profile corporate events including the American Chamber of Commerce's Super Bowl celebrations and the International SRR Conference at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
In addition to these impressive performances, the Drumline has been highly active in education across Victoria. The group regularly runs workshops and masterclasses at schools around Melbourne, a highly active Training Corps which is open to all members of the public, and 2-3 day education camps for aspiring drumline players, normally in February and September.
D² is looking to extend their education capacity by creating a schools program, providing instruments and instructors to underprivileged schools across Melbourne. The Drumline is currently applying for funding for this cause, and any support would be welcome.
The D²Drumline are proud to have fulfilled the role of official drumline for the RaboDirect Rebels throughout 2012 and would like to thank the fans and Melbourne Rebels Management for their support.
If you would like any more information on D²'s performance or educational capacities, please do not hesitate to visit their website at www.d2drumline.com or get in touch with them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
