About The Raiders

Who are the Raiders?

The Raiders is a competitive performing arts and music education organization which participates in the Drum Corps International (DCI) Open Class circuit. Our mission is to provide young adults, ages 14-21, who come from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, access to musical, educational, and character-building experiences through the vehicle of the performing arts. Some notable accomplishments include:

19 Time World Championship Finalist

2006 Bronze Medalist

2005 Divisional and World Champions

2001 Silver Medalist

What does it take to be a Raider?

At the beginning of every season, every position is available. You do not already have to be a world class performer to be a member of the Raiders, you just need the desire to become one! Membership is based upon the following factors:


Willingness and ability to learn


Physical fitness

Ability to meet all time commitments and financial requirements


The 29th edition of the Raiders will begin in late November. In order to be considered for membership, attendance at our audition camps is required.  For additional news and information as it becomes available, complete the application form below. Throughout the fall marching band season, we'll be appearing at various events. This is a great opportunity to meet some of our members and staff. We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you have.
