What is DCI? DCI stands for Drum Corps International and is basically professional marching band (Brass, Percussion, & Colorguard).  Members are in age from 14-21 and are from all over the country AND WORLD.  Drum Corps travel across the country (and sometimes world) performing at contests almost everyday during the summer months leading up to the World Championships performance in August in Indianapolis.  Drum Corps is Marching Band on Steroids!  They have elaborate, difficult, and highly entertaining shows that have a theatrical/broadway look to them.
