After much deliberation, anticipation, and dozens upon dozens of inquiries, the Kingsmen Starcorps Inc. Board of Directors and the Kingsmen Staff are very proud to announce the activation and return to drum corps competition, the Kingsmen Drum and Bugle Corps of Anaheim, California for the 2011 musical season.
The Kingsmen have a rich history and tradition admired by thousands of fans worldwide and a dedicated crew of Kingsmen Alumni and devotees from across the country have come together to bring back this ardent and fine activity. We are sending out this announcement to all of our fans, alumni, prospective members, and all curious onlookers so that any persons interested in supporting or becoming part of the organization can easily reach us. Pass the word!
We have procured an old and fabled rehearsal site of the corps—the Army Air Force Base in Los Alamitos—(Los Al) currently known as the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Center. The site includes a modern indoor music practice facility with ancillary practice rooms, a gridiron for field work, indoor gym and pool. As a matter of history, this is the same rehearsal site used by the championship Kingsmen of 1972, the first DCI champion ever. Details of time and location of rehearsals are available at the new Kingsmen web site:
