CORPS Photos

Fever Drum and Bugle Corps is a newly organized junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Modesto, California. It was formed in 2003, drawing much inspiration from the predecessor Valley Fever Drum and Bugle Corps. The group competes in DCI Division II. The 2003 show was entitled, appropriately, 'Out of Nowhere.'

The corps' uniforms are dusty red tops with grey pants.

Lewis Wilhelm, director of bands at Modesto High School, is the corps' director.

According to the corps' website, "The staff is devoted to providing the entertainers of our program a healthy and safe environment which allows them to enhance their social skills, communications capabilities, a sense of responsibility and commitment, and discipline."

Wilhelm also stresses cooperation with local high schools, adapting corps schedules around high school band schedules.

In 2004, the 85-member corps performed a classically tinged show entitled 'Rite of Passage.' Fever's inaugural participation in DCI Division II/III Finals netted them a creditable fourth-place finish, with a fine score of 92.475.
