The 2016 season was busy featuring 6 outdoor DCA exhibition performances. The corps will start preparing for 2017 featuring a new repertoire. Look for the full repertoire announcement in the near future. The Skyliners Alumni mission is to keep forever alive, the legendary charts of their master arranger – the late Herman “HY” Dreitzer. The 2017 season will feature some new and exciting tunes not heard in a while from the historical “HY” Dreitzer song-book.

The Skyliners Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps is currently celebrating the 23th anniversary and is sponsored by AL Post 1523 Staten Island NY. The corps mission is to provide an opportunity for those wishing to be a part of a traditional drum and bugle corps by performing in a variety of indoor/outdoor performances, while maintaining a twice a month rehearsal schedule.
