The UK Drum Line is a section of the Wildcat Marching Band comprised of approximately 25 - 30 music and non-music majors from both UK and BCTC. The UK Drumline performs at every football game half-time show, as well as a solo performance after each football game outside Commonwealth Stadium. In addition to their performances with the marching band, the drum line has performed independently at select Women's Volleyball games, a Women's Basketball half-time, and a Men's Basketball half-time at Rupp Arena.
