Formed as a result of the merger in 1975 between two smaller corps in the outskirts of Philadelphia, the 507 Hornets and Keystone Regiment, The Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps has grown to become a perennial Drum Corps International (DCI) World Champion Finalist, reaching the DCI Finals 22 times in the corps' brief 36 year history. Based in San Antonio, Texas, the Crossmen are the only DCI World Class Drum and Bugle corps within the Lone Star State.
In the fall of 2006, the Crossmen moved operations to San Antonio from their former home in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and re-established themselves as an independent organization in the fall of 2007. From their humble beginnings in West Chester, Pennsylvania, The Crossmen has served thousands of students throughout its 36 year history - providing not only music education, but also life-lessons for their alumni to carry with them as they leave the world of drum corps competition for a future in music performance, music education, or other career paths. The Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps is a program offering of Crossmen Productions, Inc., a non-profit musical youth organization assisting young people on the path to becoming wonderful human beings through their participation in the arts. The corps will travel over 15,000 miles this summer entertaining hundreds of thousands of fans throughout the nation.
