Drum Corps BBQ Bash Benefit
“Live” performances by several drum and bugle corps from across Texas highlight the 12th Annual Drum Corps BBQ Bash Saturday, May 6, from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Doss Community Center in Northwest Houston. The Bash, hosted by the Drum Corps Tigers of Texas, also includes a full-course BBQ lunch from Lenox Catering, big-screen viewings of Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships and dozens of prizes including DCI DVDs, movie passes and more. Special guests this year include drum corps directors Jeff Fiedler of The Cavaliers and Patrick Seidling of Phantom Regiment, which will be feted for its 50th Anniversary during the Bash. Entertainment will be provided by Percussion One, Houston’s award-winning drumline; and drum and bugle corps from several Texas cities: Gulf Coast Sound (Houston); Trinity (Seguin); Frontier (Dallas); Austin Stars (Austin); and Revolution (San Antonio).
Guests can join the fun and compete for prizes in several contests: “Fastest Drummer,” “Longest Note Held” and the “Color Guard Challenge.” Advance tickets are $10 adults/$5 ages 12 and under and are available via phone (281-397-8124) or the Tigers’ Website: http://www.drumcorpstigers.org/.
