Auditions held for UNC Charlotte drumline

CHARLOTTE—Auditions were held Sunday for the UNC Charlotte drumline.

Twenty-five spots are needed, with not much time to practice before the first football game kicks off Aug. 31. Band director Jay Grymes said the drumline is a large part of the football program.

"This is going to be an exciting component of our game day activities both pregame during the game and post game festivities the drum line will be playing along getting the fans all excited about the 49ers football team,” said Grymes.

The drumline will sound off at 10 a.m. on gameday, leading the team in a march to the stadium.
