The Maverick Machine Drumline has been created as a part of the Maverick Machine Athletic Band program to push the envelope of collegiate marching percussion in the state of Minnesota.  Using a background in drum and bugle corps mixed with contemporary show style drumming the Machine drumline will be unlike any other collegiate drumline in the state.  We welcome students who have performed with summer marching programs and who are interested in performing in the winter drumline circuit.  The Machine is a perfect way to transition from one activity to the next while keeping your chops in shape.  

Auditions - Saturday, March 16th at 1pm - Performing Arts Center 109

The audition process will begin as a large group audition on several different pieces of music (Basic Strokes, KATO, Stomper, and more) - if we are not able to decide following the group audition we will have some individual auditions.  Please come prepared with all of the music for the season.  To recieve copies of the music please contact Mr. Thursby
