River City Rhythm Drum and Bugle Corps is an Open Class competitive junior drum and bugle corps based in Anoka, Minnesota.
River City Rhythm (RCR) began as a competitive drum line, founded in Big Lake, Minnesota in 2009 to compete in the Minnesota Percussion Association (MPA) and Winter Guard International (WGI). The group met with success early on and relocated to Champlin, Minnesota in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul area during the winter of 2011-12.
In 2014, the organization announced its intent to field a drum and bugle corps to compete in Drum Corps International (DCI) beginning in 2015. As a part of the reorganizing into a drum and bugle corps, the organization sent the drum line to take part in DCI's DrumLine Battle competitions during the 2014 DCI World Championships in Indianapolis. On May 5, 2015, following a period of evaluation of the unit's finances, staffing, and tour plans by DCI's staff, RCR was one of three corps approved to compete in Open Class corps.
In the three seasons through 2017, RCR has been an Open Class finalist.
