The Steelers will strike up the band this year when they welcome the Pittsburgh Steeline, a drum line made up of Western Pennsylvania's best drummers, to training camp and home games as a part of the entertainment.
The Steeline will perform the first day of training camp, entertaining fans to the "Back to Football" celebration. They will also perform at the team's night practice on Friday, Aug. 2 at Latrobe Memorial Stadium, and Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the night practice at St. Vincent College.
Steeline owners Dustin Lowes and Vince Wallace are excited to bring their electric performances to Steelers' fans.
"There will be a lot of excitement and high energy," said Lowes, whose group appeared at games last season. "The crowd will be excited. The fans in the lot will be excited. We have added some 'Here We Go Steelers' chants in it. We want the fans to join and really enjoy themselves."
The Steeline will also perform before Steelers' home games this year, from entertaining fans before they enter the stadium, to firing up the crowd right before kickoff.
"Growing up in Pittsburgh and as a drummer, this is the pinnacle of all of our careers," said Lowes. "We all love Pittsburgh sports, the Steelers and to drum. To be able to combine it all together is a lifelong dream for us."
