Participating corps of The Drums Corps International Tour include:
Boston Crusaders - Boston, MA - One of America's oldest drum corps, who participated in the presidential inaugural parade this past January. This year, the family aspect of the Boston Crusaders is particularly poignant as they all deal with the tragic events of their home city this spring. They support each other every step of the way, and while not taking away the depth of their loss, the drum corps helps them cope and show the resilience that is the city of Boston and the Boston Crusaders.
2012 DCI Champion Blue Devils - Concord, CA - 15 time world champion.
Madison Scouts - Madison, WI - All male corps, former world champion, known for its powerful brass line.
Spirit of Atlanta - Atlanta, GA - Southern Charm with a big brass sound and high energy celebration of entertainment.
