Default Are there any other Drum and Bugle Corps in Oklahoma?

I saw this:

Commanders Drug and Bugle Corps debuted in Tulsa at the Veterans Day Parade 2009 and will perform again at the Christmas Parade on December 12th.


They are so new they didn't even have uniforms, yet.


The last one I knew of in Tulsa was in 1994. Does anyone know of any others?

Commanders Drug and Bugle Corps? I hope that's not their name.

I had no idea what one was until the Veterans Day Parade. They were really good. I did some research on the internet after hearing them in the parade. Here is what I found:

The United States Marines Drum and Bugle Corps is a well known Corps and Drum and Bugle Corps are in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parades.

Drum and Bugle corps stems from American military history, (beginning after World War I) and are separate from other marching musical activities.


The activity originated in the United States and Canada, but has spread to parts of Europe and Asia. Popular on both the east and west coasts, the closest Drum and Bugle Corps to Tulsa until recently has been Kansas, Colorado and Texas


Musical repertoires can vary widely among various groups, including symphonic, jazz, big band, contemporary, rock, wind band, vocal, Broadway, Latin music and many other genres Competitive corps participate in summer touring circuits.

They can put on a great show. I saw the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps more than once when I lived in Colorado.
