Last Night In NYC, at the Viacom screening room in the heart of Times Square NYC, Team SFPL was on hand to catch a Vip screening of VH1’s newest movie Drumline: A New Beat.

No, this is not a sequel to the box office hit movie Drumline starring Nick Cannon as the talented but hot-headed young drummer Devon Miles. It’s an updated spin on the story as they follow Danielle “Dani” Raymond (Alexander Shipp) a upper-class Brooklyn girl with a mission to prove her parents wrong and help return A&T’s band to the prominence it once held. Jordan Calloway plays her love interest/competition Jayven LaPierre. LeToya Luckett plays Dr. Nia Phillips the determined dean and former love interest of returning cast member Sean Taylor (Leonard Roberts) whose main goal is to get the band back on track. Comedian DeRay Davis plays Sean’s brother Kevin Taylor who is head of the rival marching band. Nick Cannon makes a cameo reprising his role as Devon Miles, who is now a big time music producer. Checkout photos from the event below.

The Brooklyn United Marching Band definitely turned things up a notch at the screening. It was something to see live and in person. The cast soon followed after gracing the red carpet. Step into the photos below.

We enjoyed definitely enjoyed Drumline: A New Beat and are very confident you will as well when it premieres Monday Oct. 27TH 9PM on VH1. They definitely recaptured the same magic the original had when it came to the band scenes.
