New Web site coming!

Steve Vickers, Publisher

It’s been a number of years, but we’re preparing to launch a brand-new look for our Web site, sometime in early June.

All of the content from the old site will be transferred, including all of the articles, scores and schedules. The “store” will also have a new look, with easier-to-read descriptions of all the historic CDs, DVDs and books we have available for sale.

The big news is that the issues will be accessible through the front page of the Web site rather than by going to We’ve found that most readers weren’t remembering the name of the site, so this change will make the magazine much more accessible.

In the meantime, please remember that you can see the current issue (May 2012) and any of the back issues since we went on-line for the May 2011 issue, by continuing to go to until the new Web site is introduced.

The redesign is being accomplished by Eric Bremner, who works for Doug Smith at High Velocity Media in Kingston, ONT. High Velocity is the company that releases our monthly issues and e-mail blasts during the course of the year and the owner, Doug Smith, also represents Drum Corps World by selling advertising in the publication. None of the changes that have taken place for the magazine and Web site would have happened without Doug Smith’s help.

We’re preparing a summer of excellent coverage — both through articles and photography — as Drum Corps World continues to celebrate its 40th anniversary during 2012.
