The costs of marching drum corps may not be cheap, but the rewards are priceless. My tour fees cover eight-week's worth of food, transportation, housing, uniforms, and instruction. We travel all throughout the United States to participate in various music competitions and perform for thousands and thousands of fans all over the country. The actual cost per member is $8000 but with the help of honorable sponsors, this fee is reduced to $2500 per member. Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated because in my opinion, every cent counts.
