Washington State University Drumline

Marching percussion at WSU provides an excellent opportunity to keep those rudimental chops in shape. We move, groove, and entertain! We are both a section within the Cougar Marching Band and a standalone drumline that performs at sporting events outside of football.

WSUDL alumni often reminisce about their time on the line because we are considered a strong support group. Life-long friendships are cultivated during rehearsal and performance days and many members remain best friends long after graduation.

We are more than an ensemble.

We are more than a drumline.

We are a family.
