Drum Roll Please….The River City Drum Corp presents its 4th Annual Kentucky Derby Da’Ville Drum Line Showcase featuring top drum lines from the region.  Teams from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Missouri will battle it out for bragging rights and scholarship money.  The Da’Ville Drum Line will be held today from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Kentucky International Convention Center, (KICC) located at 221 South 4th Street.  Tickets are only $10 per person.    
Some of the teams participating in this year’s event will be: Kentucky State University, Lincoln University, Central State University, Central High School, Western High School, the Mighty Marching Yellow Jackets, the Boom Squad and the Saints.  Teams will showcase their drum line style and technique.  This form of drum line musical marching has been apart of historically African-American Colleges.  Now, Louisville youth get an opportunity to experience the musical showmanship it brings. 
The founder and CEO of the River City Drum Corp Ed White says “This event exposes our youth to various things from competition, discipline, promoting higher education, and a great form of entertainment.  I invite you to attend this family friendly Kentucky Derby Festival official event.”
