Traditional drum corps, the 1940's - 1970's style drum corps are alive and well in the form of "Alumni" drum corps. "Alumni" is a bit of a misnomer, suggesting that current members marched with the corps "back in the day'. In some cases this is true, but equally often many current members of alumni corps marched with drum corps who have disappeared to history. There are a number of permutations in these groups, from full size marching corps to small groups that perform in other venues. Regardless of the corps or the style, it is still drum corps.This website is devoted to these corps and represents an effort to provide information about the corps along with links, schedules and anything pertinent to these corps.
There's a great deal to add to this site, but we need your help. Please send us information about your corps. We'll gladly post stories, pictures, videos -- anything to promote your corps and to spread the word about alumni drum corps. Our email address is listed below.We're now on Facebook too!
