Sticky Street Beat is a fairly straightforward cadence composed of two distinct sections, which can be repeated as much as the performers need, where they can eventually end the cadence with the 2nd ending as desired. Though traditional grip is specified in the score, match grip for the second section works just as well! In the first section, the snares have the left stick across the drum doing rim knocks, a technique that is often underutilized in drumline music and for young performers, may be new. This cadence is a good introduction to this technique and has a repeated pattern that won't take long to learn. For the tenors, the right hand holds a steady beat on the spock by playing 3's while having a more independent left hand, which might be a technique that is difficult for newer players, though is a style for tenors that can be found throughout drumline music. Though the bass part has splits (especially in the second section) which may be intimidating to a younger bass line, there is only one primary split that is repeated, and once the line gets it, they'll have the rest of the cadence! A band can both march to this cadence even at a quicker 132 bpm, or it makes a great filler for in the stands. Enjoy!
