Baker City Drum and Bugle Corp is the marching entertaining band that everyone wants to hear. The excitement is riveting, and the crowd is excited that they get to see The Drum and Bugle Corps again. It started out as an explorer post for the Boy Scouts. Youngsters joined at 14 and got out at 18. Nobody quit until they had to. The group was reorganized to a senior corps in 1975 and has been a crowd pleaser ever since. Listen to them at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niSZikixvHQ
