Shaun Gallant, who has been with the organization since 2018, will be stepping down as Chief Executive Officer to explore other opportunities outside of the organization and activity.
At Centre Concord, events will include a silent and live auction, raffles, music, dancing, and of course, an all-you-can eat crab dinner! All funds raised will benefit the B & C Corps as they make their return to the field in 2022. Make it a full weekend by attending the Diablo Wind Symphony concert Sunday March 6th.
Please join us in celebrating the life of Ron Menke, who passed away on January 13 at the age of 70 after a prolonged battle with cancer. Ron joined the Blue Devil’s drum staff in 1972 and would stay on thru the 1979 season. Over those 8 years the corps grew from a 70-member local-based youth group to a 3-time Drum Corps International World Champion with back-to-back high percussion trophies.
First rehearsal delayed until Monday January 31st! We're very much looking forward to seeing all of the returning members, and as always new members are ALWAYS welcome! Rehearsals will FINALLY begin January 31, 2022. We hope to see you there!
With preparations for the 2022 drum corps season well underway and a brass callback camp right around the corner, The Blue Devils are proud to introduce Corey Castillo as the newest member of our Drum Major team.
