Sun., April 17, 3 p.m.: The Battle of the Drumlines event was created by The Brooklyn Steppers as an extension of its mission to enhance the physical and social development of youth through performing arts. This year’s Battle of the Drumlines will feature a head to head battle of two of the nation’s top historically black colleges:  North Carolina A&T State University vs. South Carolina State University.

Since 1989, The Brooklyn Steppers Marching Band (formerly the Jackie Robinson Steppers Marching Band) has welcomed young people of Brooklyn from ages 8 to 18 and instilled in them discipline, teamwork, and precision.

The afternoon events will include local high school and community drumlines battling it out for top honors.  All proceeds from the event will benefit The Brooklyn Steppers’ Scholarship Fund.

C.R.E.A.M. Percussion
