CORPS Photos

The Scenic City Drum and Bugle Corps, formed in 1997, is a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The corps was formed by London E. James, Derek Gray,and David Sharp, two corps veterans and a band director. They created the Chattanooga Drum and Bugle Corps Association to establish a base for operations as well as community support.

The organization performed a feasibility study that showed that within a two-hour radius of Chattanooga lay enough cities in enough states (Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina) to provide a solid source of corps members and support. The organization also wanted to make sure that all of the big-ticket items such as musical equipment, transportation, and uniforms could be purchased in the beginning before taking on the challenge of becoming a well recognized corps in the activity for the long haul.

Scenic City placed 11th in the 2001 DCI Division III Prelims, their best finish. They also received the Best Practice Award in the year 2000 for program development from the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development Secretary in Washington, D.C. In 2003, the 35-member corps finished 26th in DCI Division II/III Prelims.

The corps' uniforms are black and burgundy, with gold accents.

Scenic City did not compete in 2004.
