  1. Arrrrr Thank you for your review. The Alumni corps all appreciate your enthusiasm and look forward to seeing you at all our events. It's great playing for people who truly love Drum Corps and support every part of the activity. (By the way mark your calendar for Music In The Mountains April 18, 2020 - we're featuring several Alumni Corps AND Al Chez & the Brothers of Funk. It will be an amazing night!) The Bucs Alumni have been working hard over the past few years to upgrade our overall image and we think we're on the right track. Thank you for noticing and letting others know. Being part of the BLUE Family is a great honor and comes with certain expectations that we are doing our best to maintain. We can't tell you how great Saturday night's show felt from the performers stand point and it seems to have been felt loud and clear by the crowd. Hope to see you in Landisville, or maybe Friends & Family in June. Thank you for your review of the show.
  2. Looks like you put together a great show. We're looking forward to joining you in Burlington.

  6. The Bucs Alumni is currently seeking a Percussion Instructor for the 2019 Season. We have a great musical program laid out for this upcoming season, we just need a Percussion Guru to give it the heartbeat, work with the line and encourage new membership. We rehearse a few Friday nights every month starting November 16th. Our rehearsal sites are all the Reading area. Want to help keep Alumni Corps alive, we look forward to your help. Please contact: Rob Danner, President Bucs Alumni - presidentbucsalumni@gmail.com for more information.

We perform concerts and parades in the Greater Reading/Berks area throughout the year. There are always open positions in our working Color Guard, Honor Guard, Percussion Section and Horn Line. Our members also assist the Reading Buccaneers All-Age Corps in a variety of ways including fundraising and volunteer hours.
