We are the UC Drumline.
We are a part of the University of Cincinnati Bearcat Bands which meets during the entire academic year. Each quarter involves something different that the members participate in within the band. During the Fall quarter, we only participate in the UC Bearcat Marching Band. During the Winter quarter, we participate in four different organizations: Pep Band, Jazz Band, Concert Band, and a Percussion Ensemble. During the Spring Quarter, we participate in Concert Band, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, and a Spring Marching Class.
Nick Angelis, our percussion instructor, is in his seventh year as Assistant Director for the Bearcat Bands. Mr. Angelis has taught at various drum corps and institutions across the country, including the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps from Dubuque, Iowa, and the Kennesaw Mountain High School Drumline from Kennesaw, Georgia.
We have four major sponsors:
Pearl Drums, Vic Firth Sticks, Zildjian Cymbals, and Evans Heads.
The UC Bearcat Drumline's main purpose is to provide a venue for students who want to participate in a college drumline and still be able to handle all their coursework and perform well academically. Regardless of major, anyone is able to join and have fun. Please contact the band office if you are interested (contact information is on the "contact us" page). We hope to see you this coming fall!
