| |

It is with great pleasure that Drum Corps Associates welcome the Columbus Saints from Columbus, Ohio to the Class ranks in 2018. The Saints passed their evaluation and are preparing for the upcoming DCA competition season.

The Columbus Saints are celebrating their fifteenth anniversary this year. The corps was founded in 2003 as the Saints Drumline Inc, by Mr. Marshall Cheatham, a social worker and juvenile corrections officer is an alumnus of the St. Andrews Hornets Drum and Bugle Corps. Styled as an Historical Black College & University drum line, the program grew to serve youth all around Columbus responding to the popularity of the film Drumline (2002). The Saints travel around the United States and perform at events with their high energy brand of entertainment. In 2013, a horn line was added under the guidance of Mr. Martin Williams, Cincinnati Tradition alum, leading to the corps to end its HBCU drum line and switch to a drum and bugle corps, competing in DCI Sound Sport All-Age and more.
