About the Drumline

The LSU Tiger Band Drumline is comprised of approximately 30 members which include the following instruments:

  • 8-10 snare drums
  • 4-6 tenors
  • 6 bass drums

Returning members must re-audition each year for the line. In addition to rehearsing with the full marching band, the Tiger Band Drumline holds additional rehearsals on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings when there is a football game.

The 2021 LSU Tiger Band Drumline is led by captains Nick Ashton and Tim Marquess, under the direction of Ty Ellender.
