The Oregon Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps 2011 debut performance takes place Sunday, June 26, at Director Park in downtown Portland.
The Oregon Crusaders are Oregon’s only drum and bugle corps. They’ve got a long, trophy strewn, history, and are starting up their 2011 season.
I had no idea “drum and bugle corps” was a thing, except Heather tells me she used to be play in one in her younger days, and last year (or maybe in 2009?) at the halftime of a Timbers game we saw the Oregon Crusaders perform. I tried to find a YouTube video that would do them justice, but there aren’t any that really convey how impressive, and loud, a live performance can be. So if you’re downtown on Sunday, check them out – the show is free, and starts at 5pm.
Oh yeah! Drum Corps is huge – and the Crusaders will be part of a bigger show out in Hillsboro on July 1. They come through every year and it’s a packed house of amazingly talented kids!
@divebarwife I totally want to catch that show if I can.
