Established in 1958, The Blue Knights are celebrating their 57th year of providing Denver area youth the opportunity to develop life skills utilizing the vehicle of music. What began as a "parade corps" performing strictly in the Denver Metro area, quickly grew into a nationally respected organization offering opportunities for youth to learn, travel, and grow through excellence in their "sport". Perennial DCI finalists, the Blue Knights are now recognized internationally for their excellence and innovation in the field of musical pageantry.
Heading into the new millennium, the Blue Knights organization has expanded its programs. A drum and bugle corps, two performing percussion ensembles, and an educational outreach program, are all a part of the Blue Knights program. In 1999, 2000 and 2003, the Blue Knights Independent World Class percussion ensemble was crowned WGI World Champion. The long-range vision of the Blue Knights is to continue expansion to include a far greater number of youth in its programs.
