Oregon, WI United States
The Shadow Drum and Bugle Corps is an Open Class competitive junior drum and bugle corps based in Oregon, Wisconsin.
The unit began as the Oregon High School Summer Marching Band in 1972 and was a charter member of the Mid-American Competing Band Directors Association (MACBDA). Competing in the MACBDA every summer, the name was changed to the Shadow Armada in 2008. In the Spring of 2016, the band applied for membership in Drum Corps International (DCI) and converted to a drum and bugle corps. After DCI evaluated the organization's resources, staff, and plans, on May 18, 2016, the unit was approved to compete in Open Class, taking the new name of Shadow Drum and Bugle Corps.
Although several corps are or formerly were sponsored by colleges or universities, Shadow is the first DCI corps sponsored by a high school.
