2015 Auditions

      Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Pittsburgh Steeline, the official drumline of the Pittsburgh Steelers. By auditioning, you are taking the first step to becoming a member of Pittsburgh’s entertainment drumline. We perform live from Heinz Field for all Steelers home games as official game-day entertainment. We also perform at various events throughout the Pittsburgh region including Steelers training camp, major area parades, and much more.

       Being a member of the Steeline is a once in a lifetime experience for any Pittsburgh-area drummer, and we want you to be a part of it! Aside from making life-long friendships, you will also enjoy many benefits such as free admittance into premier events, meeting Steelers players, and receiving event stipends.

       Below, you will find the necessary information regarding this year's auditions. Please be sure to read all information provided, and register for auditions at the “registration” section below. If you have any questions about the audition, email pghsteeline@gmail.com
