Marching Monday – 2023 Drum Corps Schedule UPDATED
The temperatures are rising, the sun is out longer, baseball season is underway, and the 2023 drum corps show schedules are out!

Jukebox Friday – Pioneer Edition
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This week, I’d like to call attention to the Pioneer drum and bugle corps of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This corps made their entire existence out of their Irish identity, so today is the perfect day to celebrate their history. Pioneer was formed in 1973 after the merger of two drum corps, the […]

It was a different time for drum corps in the 1970s and 1980s. The uniforms were closer to the military roots […]
Marching Monday – 2010 Bluecoats
NOTE: This article originally appeared on my old website as part of a series of 2010 show reviews. I’ve updated the article with photos, but the text is almost completely untouched. Enjoy!

12 Corps Of Christmas – 2012 Cadets
I was going to save this one for last. I mean, you can’t get more Christmas-y than doing a show completely composed of Christmas music with the name “12.25”, right? My plans changed when the Cadets dropped the entire 2012 show on their YouTube channel ON CHRISTMAS. If they’re going to give us such an […]
