  1. The correct link for Heat Wave Of Florida's website is www.heatwavedrumcorps.com The reason for the name was to honor the history of Drum Corps In Florida. Heat Wave Of Florida is preparing for its 3rd season of DCI open class competition (2017) and has grown dramatically since its inception. I was the founder, but had wonderful support from many DCI and DCA veterans, as well as band directors who supported how & why this was happening. Florida needed a DCI/Junior Corps. They were all a very big part of the growth of this organization. This year, Jon Otero has taken the reins as President and Executive Director, while I remain in a supporting role as a Vice President of the Board. He's doing a GREAT job, along with the wonderful administrative and instructional staff we have, growing and sustaining the momentum.
  2. Heat Wave Of Florida The auditions this weekend were an overwelming success. Many, Many new faces, more volunteer support, and an interesting mix of interested folks. The staff is doing a GREAT job in preparing the corps for an exciting 2017 season. Stay tuned for further updates and information. Kudos to John Otero, Chris Johnson, Ed Wakerley, Fray, and of course, all the instructional and support staff. Be prepared for an amazing season. Benny
