Frontier Drum and Bugle Corps is an all age drum and bugle corps based in Dallas, Tx. Frontier operates under the umbrella of the Frontier Performing Arts Association (FPAA) that operates the drum corps, a winter guard, brass ensemble, and plans for a mini corps, cadet corps and various other performing ensembles. The corps was formed by Executive Director Chris Green. The corps began rehearsals in the fall of 2004 and competed during 2005 in its inaugural season.

The corps first two years found them competing with khaki pants and tops with a black belt and cross-belt. The look was reminiscent of the 27th Lancers. In 2006 Frontier debuts a new look and uniform. The corps was founded with and continues to perform with G Bugles in its horn line.

The corps drew on a large population of displaced drum corps veterans and many adults that were unable to march junior corps. The members came from the Dallas metro area and across Texas. The first several years saw the corps develop relationships with Roller Derby and Women’s professional football franchises. In the arts world, Frontier secured invitations from the world famous Turtle Creek Chorale men’s chorus to perform in numerous concerts and television broadcast opportunities. Members of the corps participated in a recording session and appear on a CD with the chorus and an award-winning documentary entitled “Power of Harmony.”

The corps continues to grow in size and mature in quality, while introducing Texas and the Dallas area to the concept of all age drum and bugle corps. Frontier is a charter member of DCA-Central and is working with organizations in Oklahoma and Louisiana to build all age drum corps in the south and southwest U.S.
