Founding Member of Drum Corps International

THE LONG BLUE LINE

OUR MISSION

To provide an environment for the former members of the Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps to gather, meet and share experiences; support and encourage continued excellence of the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps through volunteer and financial support efforts; and further foster the ideals of Honor, Loyalty and Dedication for future members of the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps.

OUR STORY

For over sixty years, the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps has been at the cutting edge of the marching arts. In the early years, our corps founder, Mr. Jim Jones charted a new course for the destiny of Drum Corps. As originators of the touring model, the concept of merchandising, curve-linear formations, and more, the Troopers also became the first Drum Corps in history to win a National Championship with females in the playing line. In a spark of genius, Mr. Jones proposed the Midwest Combine which quickly became Drum Corps International.

The seeds that have been planted by the long blue line over the years have nurtured the activity into a high level performing and athletic art form. With that growth has come major expenses and support needs. Whether you are able to volunteer your time, make a major donation or even serve on the Board of Directors, you are the village that will keep the dream moving forward. Join us as we continue this unique mission of excellence and help inspire and raise the leaders of tomorrow.
