The Cincinnati Tradition Drum and Bugle Corps is an all-age drum and bugle corps based in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. The corps is an active member of Drum Corps Associates (DCA), and two-time Class A champion.

The corps has maintained a presence in the tri-state area since its founding.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The corps was founded by Tom Slade and Dan Hartwig in 1984. The corps acquired percussion and brass instruments from Silver Spectrum and Pride of Cincinnati Drum and Bugle Corps.[1] Prior to 2009, the corps was not competitive, performing primarily as a parade corps and in exhibition at events within the Cincinnati metropolitan area.

In 2010, the corps became an active member of DCA. The corps was a Class A finalist in 2014 and 2015, and class champions in 2016 and 2017.[2] The corps advanced to Open Class in 2018, finishing the year in eighth place.[3]
