Star Steppers Drill Team and Drummers at the Liberty Bowl Parade 2012

The other musical entry from Memphis in the Liberty Bowl Parade was the Star Steppers Drill Team and Drummers, one of the few Memphis majorette or drill teams to still include a drumline as was once traditional for all Memphis drill teams. At the end of the parade route, the dancers and drummers paraded down Lt. George W. Lee Avenue between the Fed Ex Forum and Beale Street, then posted up at the Fourth Street corner across from Church Park. When Bellevue Middle School’s majorettes and drummers marched up to the same spot, a series of drum battles began between the two Memphis squads, attracting a fairly large crowd of locals and visitors alike.
