Ole Miss Band – The Pride of the South

University of Mississippi

Marching Percussion


The Ole Miss Drumline is a very special part of the Pride of the South.  We have some of the best drummers from Mississippi and across the country.  On most afternoons in the fall semester, the drumline can be seen outdoors around the music building (and heard across campus) working on their grooves.  Our drummers are very dedicated to their work, and they take their role with the Pride of the South very seriously.  They are typically the first people to begin and the last people to leave band practice.  They are featured at each Ole Miss home football game on the grove stage right before the Pride of the South grove pep rally.  The Ole Miss Drumline has been featured on the SEC Network’s game-day tv program SEC NATION.  The Ole Miss Drumline is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Vic Firth Drumsticks, and Remo Drum Heads.  For information about percussion auditions at Ole Miss, email umband@olemiss.edu.
