Every year, the best drum and bugle corps from across the country come to compete at Drums Along The Mohawk at RFA Stadium in Rome. This year, Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps will be in town. Santa Clara Vanguard was one of the original corps in Drum Corps International (DCI). Founded in 1967, this California corps is known for their exciting and innovative performances.  They've won 6 DCI World Championships, and they're no stranger to RFA Stadium.  Here's a look at what they've been working on this summer:

The "Silicon Valley" corps will be bringing their new show to Rome for Drums Along The Mohawk.  The show is entitled "Force of Nature" and it looks like they will be a force to be reckoned with for sure.
