A drum & bugle corps (or simply drum corps) is a marching unit with brass instruments, drums, and color guard. Drum corps typically perform on-field at competitions, parades, festivals and other public functions or events, and are in many ways quite similar to marching bands. Music can vary widely among drum & bugle corps shows, and, depending upon the conductor/composer can include classical music, jazz music, big band and swing, top 40, rock, Broadway showtunes and music from other genres. Drum Corps are competitors by nature, but some corps do not take part in competitions, instead serving as education for youths, as alumni corps for adults (military or otherwise), as entertainment for festivals, fairs and parades, or for other functions.
