We miss every one of them . . .

Recommended Posts

. . . but, of all the great, now defunct corps of the past (DCI era only), how would you rank the degree to which they are missed?

 

Consider:

- Contributions to Innovation and Advancements in the Activity

- Fan Popularity and Entertainment Value

- Competitive Success and Longevity

- Visibility Outside the Activity

- Image / Strength of Identity

- General Drum Corps “Lore”

 

I’ll start:

1) 27th Lancers

2) Bridgemen

3) Star of Indiana*

4) Anaheim*

5) Argonne

6) Muchachos

7) Kilties

8) Suncoast Sound

9) Oakland

10) VK

11) Guardsmen

12) Glassmen

13) Freelancers

14) Sky Ryders

15) Seneca

16) North Star

17) Magic

18) Black Knights

19) Blue Rock

20) Bleu Raiders

21) St. Rita's

22) Blessed Sac

There are hundreds more to add to this list. The one's in your list were/are ALL important. It saddens me that they are gone! The corps will never return and what we had in the 1970's and 1980's will never happen. All we have are our memories and hopefully a video.

Stockton Commodores

Des Plaines Vanguard

Avant Garde.....and on and on.

Of course, there are dozens more, and the amazing thing is that they all had distinct, clearly defined identities.
