The USF Herd of Thunder Drum Line is open to all University of South Florida students as well as students from any other college/university in the Greater Tampa Bay Area (HCC, PHSC, SPC, UT, etc.). The HOT Drum Line fields up to 10 snares, 6 tenors, 6 basses, and 10 cymbals. We do not have a front ensemble.

Auditions will be held July 20-21 from 3pm-7pm at the USF School of Music. Those who make the line will be expected to be at pre-camp August 15-17, 2019 for two-a-day practices (8am-12pm & 4pm-8pm). Full Band Camp will be held August 17-24, 2019.

We will hold three informal camps during the summer months. These will be held at the School of Music at USF. All of these are optional and not required for audition. However, you will gain knowledge of what we are looking for in your audition as well as have the opportunity to work with our leadership and staff. Should you have any questions, please contact Kevin von Kampen:

Provide us with your information below so that we can plan for your attendance and provide you with information, music, etc. We will start to send out information at the end of the school year.
