Many of the top marching musicians of a region participating in an event similar to marching band, but different in the fact that it uses only brass and percussion instruments. Woodwinds (clarinets, flutes, saxophones, etc) are excluded from drum corps. Akin to marching band on steroids, and providing an unforgettable and powerfull experiance to it's members.
Examples of drum corps:
The Cavaliers
Santa Clara Vanguard
Bluecoats
Glassmen
Carolina Crown
Phantom Regiment

1.) A sport in which a large group of people,often 135 people, aged 15-21 play brass and percussion instruments while marching a strenous drill. There are also non-instrumental performers known as colorguard, which produces effect for the show using various devices, often flags, rifles, sabers, etc.
I'm going to a drum corps show this friday.

Despite what many bandos will say, Drum Corps is not "marching band on steroids," but a totally beast than both college or high school marching bands. It requires immense amounts of both time and energy to march in a drum corps, and is a truly amazing experience for all Corps Members.

1. One of the best unrecognized sports in the world. Including mostly brass instruments, colorguard and a pit.
2. A 'professional' marching band so to speak that tours the USA for weeks at a time. Sleeping on gym floors, riding on busses, and being fed after spending long strenuous hours in the sun for marching rehersals.
Hey Otto, did you catch that kick ass marching drum corp show during the DCI finals?

Band on Steroids

Major Differences:

1) Not owned by schools (Except for Spirit of JSU)

2) All Brass, Battery, Pit, and Guard. (I can thank god for no woodwinds)

3) Max of 135 people

4) Done all summer with competitions almost every day with a World Championship competition at the end

5) Shows can get to 13 minutes long and never go less than 10

6) We (Those who march it) actually care about it and are not as nerdy as band geeks

7) The fee for the whole summer can go $1000+ Pluse paying for the monthly camps before move-in

8) Constantly traveling across U.S. (Also exists in Europe and some Asian countries including Japan)

9) Music is harder (you have to try out to get into most of them)

10) Very few corps go less than 100 sets and one has gone nearly 300

11) Max age is 21 (22 under a certain condition)

12) The World Championship competitions can have up to or more than 40,000 people watching.

13) Music is never highschool style marching music; They never march "Ghetto" Style

14) Don't support anybody (Unlike bands who love their football teams and the teams hate them back)

15) Cooler to be in than marching band (more honor)
Person 1: So, you getting a job this summer?

Person 2: Nope, marchin' drumcorps

In modern times, marching band for people too stupid to spell properly - or care enough to use a spellchecker. Such people are usually woefully ignorant about a lot of other things too. Sometimes this is due to the presence and influence of mediocre teachers, purported leaders and even predators who use children for reasons of sexual or financial exploitation. All of these are very bad signs of something no one decent should want to be involved with. Amusingly for "drumcorp" critics, "corp" is also the abbreviation (without the period) for corporation - and corporate exploitation is often one of the reasons for the ignorance and lack of care such mispellings reflect.
The use of the terms "drumcorps", "drumcorp", "drum corp" and "corp" are all signs of ignorance and a lack of respect for drum corps, drum and bugle corps and other genuine marching musical history.

Unfortunately, these misspellings and contractions are also being intentionally used in order to further disguise fraud.
