DC’s Different Drummers Winterguard is very excited to Save the City of Dayton, Ohio just in time for WGI World Championships! We will be performing in the Dayton Arena at 7pm ET on Thursday April 13 and our performance will stream on Flomarching.
While we are well known for saving multiple cities in our local Atlantic Indoor Association circuit in Virginia, most audience members in Dayton will be be viewing us for the first time. Here are some fun facts about the 2023 DCDD Winterguard:
- We will be making history on Thursday night! DC’s Different Drummers is the first Pride Band Alliance (LGBTQ) organization to field a winterguard and the first to compete in WGI World Championships.
- Our heroes also participate in DCDD’s other ensembles: Marching Band, Jazz Band, and Symphonic Band.
- The ages of our members span four decades. We have a variety of colorguard and marching experience ranging from every class of WGI, DCI, DCA, college and high school marching band. We also have performers who are doing colorguard for the first time!
- With low member dues and a modified rehearsal schedule, our emphasis is accessibility and fun!
- In our debut season in 2022 we were crowned senior class champions at AIA North Championships with twelve performers . This year eighteen are spinning in world class! We are so excited for our fans to come join us on the floor for 2024!
