All- Star Drum Corps: Mardi Gras Galveston, TX

Post by mdsandz » Tue Jan 13, 2004 5:46 pm

Represent your corps February 14th at the Seventh Annual All- Star Drum Corps Mardi Gras Weekend on Galveston Island.

The Gulf Coast Drum Corps Association and Gulf Coast Sound Drum & Bugle Corps are proud to host the event. Participation is open to past and present members of any drum corps. Previous All- Star Drum Corps have included members of the Caballeros, Carolina Gold, Cavaliers, CorpsVets, Syracuse Brigadiers, Empire Statesmen, Erie Thunderbirds, Heat Wave, Kilties, Madison Scouts, Mighty St. Joes, Minnesota Brass, Inc., Santa Clara Vanguard and many others.

The weekend will begin with a rehearsal Friday evening, the 13th of February, followed by a welcoming party catered with good food and drink. We’ll load the charter bus Saturday morning and head to the historic Strand District of Galveston Island for the Z- Krewe Processional. After the parade you’ll be admitted to the festival area free of charge to enjoy the celebration. Saturday evening the massed- corps will perform in the Krewe of Gambrinus Seawall Parade. This infamous trek includes almost four miles of the beautiful Texas Coast and 300, 000 spectators!

Ready to join the fun? Send an e- mail to: MardiGrasGalveston2004@hotmail.com
Include your contact information and the part you would like to play and we’ll reply with music and all the details for the weekend. Registration is $35.00 and includes transportation to and from events, food and drink for a great party Friday night, admission to The Strand Historic District and a guaranteed- to- be tacky shirt to commemorate the event!
