Cincinnati Tradition Drum & Bugle Corps was formed in 1984 when the founders, Tom Slade and Dan Hartwig, decided to add brass and color guard to the championship drum line of the existing Silver Spectrum. The new corps acquired much needed brass instruments with the help of the Pride of Cincinnati Drum & Bugle Corps, which folded at the end of the 1984 season. With the new elements, a new corps name seemed important, thus the Cincinnati Tradition.

The Tradition won the Ohio VFW Parade Championships in 1984, 1985 and 1986. They also took first place at the 1988 Norwood Centennial Parade. They were selected in 1988 to perform in the City of Cincinnati Bicentennial Parade.

The Tradition took off the years 1995 and 1996 to help Mike "Cozy" Baker form the Mirage Senior Drum & Bugle Corps in Miamisburg, Ohio.

In 1998 the Tradition returned to Cincinnati and has been active in the Tri-State area ever since. The Tradition performs in exhibitions in Cincinnati, Centerville, and the Columbus area.
