Description

Stadium 54 by David Reeves is your drumline's Swiss Army knife of tools to keep the audience grooving at any occasion - in the stands AND on the street. Complete with 10 stadium grooves and 4 streetbeats, this collection of people movers is the perfect addition to your entertainment arsenal. The pieces vary in length, style, and mood so you'll have plenty of options for picking the right sounds at the right time, whether to get the crowd dancing between plays or just to make the other side jealous!

This book comes with all scores and performance notes professionally bound in a full color cover designed by the tasteful and percussive hand of Will Goodyear. A companion CD-ROM is included containing recordings of each piece plus all the individual parts in PDF format ready to print when you need them. All pieces include snares, tenors, cymbals, and bass drums (for 4, 5, or 6 basses).

"If you want to rock the stands hard-core, it's ALL HERE for you! Hear what I'm sayin' - you'll want to check yourselves into some of this!"

Ralph Hardimon
DCI Hall of Fame



 "Stadium 54 is a fun and versatile addition to my library. These grooves and streetbeats can be used as exercises, for performance in the stands, and for quick fillers for concerts and parades. The variety of difficulty levels and lengths of the music should meet everyone's needs. Enjoy!"

Jim Ancona
Percussion Arranger, Carolina Crown
Assistant Director, University of Delaware Marching Band 


 "Stadium 54 is the perfect collection for every high school marching band. David Reeves provides us with bleacher features and cadences that are sure to excite players and fans everywhere. This book has something for every caliber of player and provides players with a fun, challenging, and educational experience while giving the crowd something to groove to!"

Josh Torres
Director of Percussion, Center Grove High School 


This is a collection of drumline cadences of varying lengths. According to Reeves, “Though the book lends itself to a band-in-the-bleachers or parade scenario, these works can be used in any setting where a drumline is called on to perform or even just as fun study pieces to work on the battery section’s timing and groove skills. Some of these works are fairly straightforward and technically simple while others require a little more preparation and technical prowess.”

The book includes ten stadium grooves and four cadences. Scored for snares, tenors (quints), bass drums, and cymbals, Reeves provides alternatives for varying number of performers (e.g., 4-6 bass drums) as well as a legend for various effects on all instruments (“skank,” stick-shot, short and long buzzes, muffled sounds, et al.) Every piece is given a detailed musical description and performance notes as well as an approximate performance time. The accompanying CD provides play-along tracks as well as a pdf file from which to print the parts.


This is a must-have for every band director, drumline instructor, and drumline member. With every groove or cadence having a different style for its foundation (samba, techno, Latin, etc.), there are plenty of variations to keep the percussion section active in the bleachers or in a parade. Reeves’ professional presentation of the material as well as the accompanying musical descriptions provide performers with an approach to drumline composition that makes it musical as well as fun.
