All-Star Band Searching for the Best for Disney's Christmas Parade

Wanted: 25 Drummers Drumming

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, 12 drummers drumming.

Actually, this Christmas it will be 25 drummers drumming in the percussion section of the prestigious USBands All-Star Marching Band. And USBands is looking for the best 25 drummers in all the land to join us for our march on Main Street U.S.A and the nationally-televised Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade.
